Suzuki has indeed been penalized, but it turns out to be a fine of $2,500.

More details will follow.
Suzuki himself was not happy with the referee's decision:

It's "only" $2,500, but it's mainly the significance of the additional measure that is controversial and seemingly unnecessary.
This leaves a mark on Suzuki's record and will influence possible future sanctions.
