FIA investigates Hamilton’s behavior after failure in Qatar
Record world champion Lewis Hamilton may have to face consequences for his walk across the track after his retirement from the Qatar Grand Prix.
Behavior with consequences? Lewis Hamilton goes for a walk in Qatar.
The International Automobile Federation confirmed on Sunday that it would take another look at the incident at the Qatar GP. After the early retirement due to a collision with his Mercedes team-mate George Russell, Hamilton crossed the track on foot, which is forbidden.
The 38-year-old Brit then apologized to the race stewards and admitted a serious breach of safety rules, the statement continued. In his role as a role model, the FIA is concerned about the impression Hamilton’s actions could have on younger drivers.
Stroll received a written warning
The association recently issued a written warning to the Canadian Aston Martin driver Lance Stroll because of his outburst of anger in Qatar. The Canadian lost his temper during qualifying, threw his steering wheel out of the car and shortly afterwards pushed his physiotherapist in front of the camera. During the TV interview, which is mandatory for all drivers, he appeared to be in a bad mood.
