Mercedes fined €10 000 for unsafe release of Hamilton

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team were fined €10 000 on Saturday for his ‘unsafe release’ from the pits during the third free practice for Sunday’s German Grand Prix.

Hamilton had faced an investigation after Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean was forced to stop in the pit lane to avoid the Briton pulling out of his garage in front of him. After being summoned to the stewards, Mercedes were fined €10,000 for an unsafe release.

Hamilton avoided a reprimand, the Brit already has two reprimands to his name this season, and a third would see him issued with an automatic 10-place grid demotion.

Hamilton was second in qualifying behind Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg.

He leads the world championship by six points after overhauling a 43-point deficit with five wins in six races, including a hat-trick in his last three outings.
