- FIA penalises eight drivers over track-limit violations
The Mercedes team principal, Toto Wolff, has described his strong words to Lewis Hamilton, in effective demanding his driver focus on his job, as an effort to calm things down at a fractious Austrian Grand Prix.
After the race the FIA, motor sport’s governing body, also reacted to a host of track-limit violations, including those that had been exercising Hamilton and that went on to change the results post-race, by insisting the circuit make changes to allow Formula One to continue to race at the Red Bull Ring.
