Given the lap times involved one can say with some certainty that Hamilton’s penalty related to a move on lap 45, while Alonso’s penalty was linked to the collision on lap 46 that led him to pit at the end of the lap.

We did not see anything in the commentary box that raised alarms but the stewards have access to far more footage and data than we do and I suspect they want to set a precedent in this new style of F1 racing... We did not hear about Hamilton's potential penalty during the race because the issue was only raised by Alonso and Ferrari afterwards. Alonso was also penalised 20 seconds after running into the back of Hamilton but, given he did not damage the Briton's race at that point, I would have thought having to pit for a new nose was penalty enough.
