Ferrari asked to apologise following Parc Ferme infraction


Ferrari has been asked to apologise for the parc ferme incident in Singapore but no further action will be taken.

The Italian team had been summoned to the stewards following Sebastian Vettel’s victory at Marina Bay for a breach of article 12.1.1.i of the International Sporting Code, with the behaviour of some members of the Ferrari team said to have behaved ‘in an inappropriate manner’.

Mechanics reportedly pushed track officials during the celebrations beneath the podium as they looked to join in, and the FIA have now asked for Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene to write an unconditional apology for the incident.

“The Stewards, having received a complaint from the Secretary of the Event on behalf of himself 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, the Secretary of the Event and the Head of the Security Contingent,” said a statement from the FIA.

“The Team Representative has offered to have the Team Principal send a written unconditional apology to those who were affected and to give an assurance that there will not be a recurrence.”
