7-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has said he is being fined by the FIA ​​(Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) for not showing up for the annual FIA gala, which is held as an awards ceremony after winning his record eighth championship title against Red Bull’s Max Verstappen lost Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The top three drivers in the standings are required by FIA norms to attend the annual gala in Paris, where the board officially recognizes its champions. After being unhappy with the events of last season’s finale, neither Hamilton nor Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff attended, citing “disappointment” with F1 decision-making.

“There will be some form of consequence for the Gala,” Hamilton said ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix when asked if he had been fined for his absence following a meeting with current FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem on Thursday.

“But we worked together to ensure that the money for young people from underprivileged backgrounds is put into motorsport technology,” says the Briton when asked about the type and use of the fine he has to pay.

Mohammed Ben Sulayem was chosen by the FIA ​​just after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December last year, and he was quick to declare that Hamilton would face “no mercy” for his breach of etiquette. “I met Mohammed a long, long time ago at an event in Dubai so it’s fantastic to see him in the situation he’s in.” Hamilton said about his connection with Mohammed Ben Sulayem. “That adds to the diversity challenge we’re trying to meet.”

For the 2022 season of F1, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton is looking forward to taking his lost world title from current title holder Max Verstappen.
