F1 is no different to any sport with drivers hit with penalties for various offences that contravene the FIA’s sporting regulations.

Whether it’s for a collision on track, speeding in the pit lane or storming out of a drivers’ briefing, all of the above have potential consequences. 

Most fined drivers?

The retiring Sebastian Vettel has racked up over €30,000 in fines across the opening 13 races of the season, a study by Casumo discovered.

The four-time champion was hit with a €25,000 fine for ‘behaviour during the drivers’ meeting’ at the Austrian Grand Prix. 

Vettel also received a €5,000 fine for driving a scooter on track within the five-minute window of FP1 in Australia before picking up further fines for speeding during the season.
