Jaime Alguersuari has lost his point for tenth place in the Belgian Grand Prix for cutting the Bus Stop chicane whilst passing Force India's Tonio Liuzzi.

Race stewards examined the incident and handed the Toro Rosso driver a 20 second penalty, meaning Alguersuari drops to 13th as a result.

The revised result means that Tonio Liuzzi moves up to tenth ahead of Pedro de la Rosa and Sebastien Buemi.

The penalty will come as a big disappointment to Alguersuari, who had described the race as the most exciting of his career.
