Lance Stroll warned by FIA for behaviour at Qatar GP

Lance Stroll has apologised to the FIA over his action at the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix

-

Lance Stroll has been officially warned by the FIA for his behaviour during qualifying for the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix after they concluded their discussions with the Aston Martin driver.

Stroll was eliminated in Q1 for the fourth consecutive race and showed his frustration at the Losail International Circuit by throwing his steering wheel when pushed back into the garage and shoved his trainer after getting out of the car.

His trainer appeared to point him in the direction of getting weighed immediately after qualifying, which Stroll failed to do.

When speaking to F1 Media, Stroll was asked three questions but offered up only six words which underlined his frustration about qualifying in 17th.

“We can confirm that the FIA Compliance Officer has received an apology from Lance Stroll regarding his actions during the 2023 FIA Formula 1 Qatar Grand Prix,” an FIA spokesperson told Total-Motorsport.com.

“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 is 10th in the F1 drivers’ championship and 136 points behind Aston Martin teammate Fernando Alonso with five events remaining this season.

“We’re in a rut, and it’s not getting better,” a disgruntled Stroll told the media in Qatar. “Frustration is just in the whole group right now.

“We want to do better, we want to get better. But it’s just a struggle right now. I’m just struggling with the car and just getting to grips with the balance.”
