Lewis Hamilton has received a heavy fine for crossing the track following his collision with George Russell at the Qatar Grand Prix. No further action will be taken for the collision itself.

Lewis Hamilton and George Russell collided on Lap 1 of the Qatar Grand Prix, and afterwards they both had to report to the stewards.

Lewis has already admitted the crash was his fault, and although the stewards found him to be “predominantly at fault”, they decided not to take any further action, because it was deemed to be a ‘Lap 1, Turn 1’ incident.

Lewis was also investigated for crossing the track following the incident, which was a breach of Article 26.7b of the Sporting Regulations.

For this he received a €50,000 fine, but half of it has been suspended until the end of the 2023 season, and issued as a reprimand.
