Leclerc, Verstappen and Hamilton fined


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.
