F1: Lance Stroll apologises to FIA over behaviour at Qatar GP

Aston Martin driver Lance Stroll has apologised to motorsport’s governing body for his behaviour after qualifying at last weekend’s F1 Qatar Grand Prix. The 24-year-old was under investigation by the FIA’s compliance officer for potentially breaking F1 rules. An FIA spokesperson said the compliance officer had received an apology and issued an official warning to Stroll. Stroll’s actions in Qatar came after he had been knocked out during the first session of qualifying, in which he lapped 1.122 seconds slower than team-mate Fernando Alonso. It was the fifth consecutive weekend in which Stroll had been knocked out of qualifying after the first session. The interview was not part of the FIA’s investigation, BBC Sport understands. Aston Martin are owned by Stroll’s father, the Canadian businessman Lawrence Stroll.
