And despite a week passing, the FIA are now due to take another look at the infraction – not necessarily to increase the punishment for Hamilton – but to review whether or not penalties for this type of incident should be greater.
"The FIA is revisiting the incident in which Lewis Hamilton crossed a live track during the Qatar Grand Prix," an FIA spokesperson said (per Motorsport.com).
"The FIA notes that Lewis was apologetic during the subsequent stewards hearing in to the incident and acknowledged that the crossing was a serious safety breach.
"However, in view of his role model status, the FIA is concerned about the impression his actions may have created on younger drivers."
