Ferrari have offered to “send a written unconditional apology” to Singapore Grand Prix officials and security staff at the Marina Bay circuit after an incident at the end of the race.
With Sebastian Vettel winning his third race of the season, Ferrari mechanics broke through a security barrier, pushing security officials aside in the process, in order to celebrate under the podium.
The matter was reported to the stewards by the secretary of the event and the team’s sporting director, Massimo Rivola, was ordered to explain his teams actions during a meeting.
It was agreed that the team would send a letter of apology to the organisers.
“The stewards, having received a complaint from the secretary of the event and the members of the security contingent at post-race parc ferme, that some members of Scuderia Ferrari failed to obey instructions of relevant officials and behaved in an inappropriate manner, have heard from the team manager [Rivola], the secretary of the event and the head of the security contingent,” a FIA statement read.
“The team representative has offered to have the team principal [Maurizio Arrivabene] send a written unconditional apology to those who were affected and to give an assurance there will not be a recurrence.”
