which drivers have been fined the most in f1 2022?

Which F1 drivers have been the biggest rule breakers in the opening 13 races of the season? And which driver has accrued the most fines?

F1 is no different to any sport with drivers hit with penalties for various offences that contravene the FIA’s sporting regulations.

Whether it’s for a collision on track, speeding in the pit lane or storming out of a drivers’ briefing, all of the above have potential consequences. 

    Most fined drivers?

    The retiring Sebastian Vettel has racked up over €30,000 in fines across the opening 13 races of the season. 

    The four-time champion was hit with a €25,000 fine for ‘behaviour during the drivers’ meeting’ at the Austrian Grand Prix. 

    Vettel also received a €5,000 fine for driving a scooter on track within the five-minute window of FP1 in Australia before picking up further fines for speeding during the season.
