Lewis Hamilton could be punished for snubbing Formula One’s end of season gala in Paris as the new FIA president warns there will be ‘no forgiveness’ if the Mercedes driver has broken the rules

Lewis Hamilton could face punishment for snubbing the end-of-season Formula One prize giving gala this week after dramatically losing the world title to Max Verstappen. Article 6.6 of F1’s sporting regulations state that failure to attend the ceremony is a breach of the rules. And Ben Sulayem said: ‘First of all, as a driver, I would feel emotional but at the end of the day rules are rules. We have to be following our rules, but in the meanwhile it doesn’t stop us from making a champion feel good about the sport. But if there is any breach there is no forgiveness in this.’.
