Ferrari to offer ‘unconditional apology’


Ferrari have said that they will make an unreserved apology for the fracas that occurred in parc ferme following the Singapore Grand Prix.

A complaint was made to the race stewards with regards to the behaviour of some Ferrari personnel as they looked to celebrate Sebastian Vettel's victory.

Members of the team rushed towards parc ferme after the race, with some pushing through a barrier and past security staff as they looked to get closer to the podium.

Following the complaint, Ferrari sporting director Massimo Rivol was summoned to attend a hearing at which the team were told that apology was required.

An FIA statement on the incident read: "The stewards, having received a complaint from the secretary of the event and the members of the security contingent at post-race parc ferme, that some members of Scuderia Ferrari failed to obey instructions of relevant officials and behaved in an inappropriate manner, have heard from the team manager [Rivola], the secretary of the event and the head of the security contingent.

"The team representative has offered to have the team principal [Maurizio Arrivabene] send a written unconditional apology to those who were affected and to give an assurance there will not be a recurrence."
