Jean-Éric Vergne has blotted his copybook in his first weekend as a full-time Grand Prix driver; the Frenchman has been fined by the FIA Stewards for speeding in the pit-lane during today’s third practice session.
The Toro Rosso rookie was clocked driving at 61.2km/h at the start of today’s final practice outing, a mere 1.2km/h over the prescribed pit-lane speed limit.
Accordingly, the Stewards have relieved him of €400 for his troubles. The same penalty was handed out yesterday to Pastor Maldonado, after the Williams driver was found to have been speeding in the pit lane during yesterday’s second practice session.
