Hamilton reprimanded by stewards in Bahrain

NEWS STORY
02/04/2016

Lewis Hamilton was reprimanded by Bahrain stewards following an incident at the end of qualifying.

The Mercedes driver and a team representative were requested to report to the Stewards at 20:45 (local time) after it was alleged that the world champion reversed in the pitlane at the end of today's qualifying session, a breach of Article 28.3 of the Sporting Regulations.

The stewards, who include Derek Warwick, deemed that a reprimand should be imposed on the driver due to the fact that no clear instruction was given to him on where he should park the car after qualifying.

"It might seem like a Mickey Mouse rule, but it's pretty much universal in racing and for good reason. With very little rear visibility, we can't have drivers backing up on pit lane with people around. Hamilton is lucky to have only been given a reprimand when previous incidents involving reversing have resulted in disqualification."
