United States Grand Prix: FIA quadruple maximum F1 driver fine to 1m euros

Governing body the FIA said on Thursday it was quadrupling the maximum fine stewards can impose from 250,000 euros. “I have no idea what deserves a 1m euros penalty,” said Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc. He said the rise was a “huge amount of money” and commented: “Some drivers are making less than that.”. There was no clarity on the sort of offence that a driver or team could commit to be hit with such a fine. “If touching a rear wing is $50k, I would like to know what a million is,” he said. But Hamilton said: “I don’t think I was singled out. “I saw that from the outside people are trying to talk some BS,” he said.
