Apologetic Stroll receives written warning from FIA

Aston Martin driver Lance Stroll has been issued a written warning for his conduct at last weekend’s Formula 1 Qatar Grand Prix.

The FIA revealed earlier in the week that its Compliance Officer was in discussion with Stroll over incidents that took place at Lusail.

It is understood that it related to his conduct after being eliminated from qualifying, when he appeared to have an altercation with his Performance Coach.

On Friday the governing body outlined that Stroll has communicated his regret over the situation and the matter is now considered closed.

“The FIA Compliance Officer received an apology from Lance Stroll regarding his actions during the 2023 FIA Formula 1 Qatar Grand Prix,” read a brief statement.

“The Compliance Officer has noted this apology and issued a written warning, reminding Lance of his responsibilities as a competitor bound by the FIA Code of Ethics and other FIA ethical and conduct guidelines set forth by the sporting regulations.

“The FIA maintains a zero-tolerance stance against misconduct and condemns any actions that may lead to physical harassment.”

Stroll has endured a tough run of grands prix as Aston Martin’s performance has regressed.

Stroll has not scored a single point since Formula 1 returned from its summer break, a run which also included a sizeable accident in qualifying in Singapore, which ruled him out of the race.
