FIA rule no further penalties on Vettel/Hamilton incident

According to F1 journalists on Twitter, there will be no further action taken against Sebastian Vettel for his part in the incident between himself and Lewis Hamilton during the Baku Grand Prix.

The FIA reviewed the incident with Vettel and his team manager, Maurizio Arrivebene, as they were concerned about the FIA’s “image” and “reputation” as well as young, impressionable minds in supporting categories. Vettel took full responsibility for his actions and apologized to the FIA with the understanding that he would make that apology public as well.

Vettel will not be able to represent any road safety activities until the end of this year and will have to engage in educational activities over the next 12 months for junior categories of racing.

FIA president, Jean Todt, says that due to the severity of the actions, Vettel will be on a very short leash and any future actions will be cause for immediate action.
