Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc were all hit with fines by the FIA after being caught speeding in the pit lane during Thursday’s running at the Monaco Grand Prix. The Ferrari pair were hit in the pocket to the tune of €300, while Hamilton was fined €400.
Hamilton left the Ferraris in his wake during Thursday’s sessions, which both ended with the Mercedes man at the top of the timesheets.
The closest either Leclerc or Vettel got was the Monegasque closing to within three tenths in FP1.
With all drivers keen to push the limits in a race where the margins are tighter than most, it seems the big-name trio went too far at various points of the day.
Hamilton’s punishment was slightly harsher, seemingly as he simply exceeded the 60 km/h limit by more – to be precise, by 1 km/h more than the Ferrari duo.
