The top three from the Austrian GP, Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen, and Lewis Hamilton, have been suspended for violating parc ferme instructions after Sunday’s race.
Leclerc, Verstappen, and Hamilton were all summoned to stewards on Sunday evening for a breach of the International Sporting Code, alleged to have failed to follow the instructions.
The instructions were: “Driver physios must wait outside the cool down room behind the podium until the podium ceremony has concluded.”
“In part this is to prevent handing over items to the drivers prior to them being weighed.”
The stewards say the fines are “suspended for the remainder of the season pending any further violation of the procedure” and that the “passes of the individuals concerned may be revoked in case of systemic violation”.
