Mexico City E-Prix: All Formula E penalties at a glance
Also in the new 2023 Formula E season, the FIA race commissioners must monitor compliance with the Technical and Sporting Regulations. If there is a breach of the rules, it is their task to determine the level of punishment.
At the Mexico City E-Prix, Omar Chavez, Achim Loth and Michael Schwägerl will take on this job. They will be supported by ex-racing driver Paul Belmondo. The 59-year-old Frenchman has never competed in a Formula E race, but after five years in Formula 3000 he was also active in Formula 1 for several years during his career. Below, as usual, you'll find a list of all the decisions made by the race stewards.
Penalties in qualifying
- Norman Nato was fined 500 euros for speeding in the pit lane. Instead of a maximum of 50 km/h, the Frenchman was "flashed" with 54,9 km/h.
The first penalty in the gen3 era of #ABBFormulaE goes to @NISMO driver Norman Nato. He has been the fastest driver during qualifying, but unfortunately just in the pit lane. The French ?? driver has to pay a fine of 500 EUR. He will start the #MexicoCityEPrix from P20. #FormulaE pic.twitter.com/GSS1D6NMOn- Tobias Wirtz (@tobiw_apex) January 14, 2023
