Leclerc, Verstappen and Hamilton fined

NEWS STORY
10/07/2022

Today's three podium finishers, Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton have each been fined €10,000 for a breach of the parc ferme regulations.

All three drivers were summoned following today's Grand Prix after the stewards received a report from the media delegate, which was subsequently confirmed by video evidence.

Namely, that the physio / drivers' assistants of the top three finishers entered parc ferme without permission and in violation of the procedure that was published prior to the race “for the orderly conduct of the event".

In part this is to prevent handing over of items to the drivers prior to them being weighed.

As a result each is fined €10,000, which will be suspended for the remainder of the season pending any further violation of the procedure, while the three have been warned that the passes of the individuals concerned may be revoked in case of systemic violation.

Speculation that all three have been detained for further checks on their underwear and jewellery are thought to be wide of the mark.

"If they want the parc fermé area not to be breached, then have officials rope it off as soon as the cars stop rolling and engine are shut down."

"If it is that much of an issue for unauthorised personnel to enter parc ferme, why don't they have someone there to stop them? or even monitoring it?
From that report, it would seem that the stewards didn't even realise until alerted..."
