Hamilton penalised after crashing out in Monaco

Lewis Hamilton has picked up a penalty after also crashing out in Monaco Grand Prix practice.

Lewis Hamilton has been found guilty of speeding in the pit lane before crashing out of Monaco Grand Prix Third Practice.

The three-time Monte Carlo winner brought an early end to FP3 after losing the rear of the heavily-upgraded Mercedes at Mirabeau, with the front left becoming wedged under the barrier.

No further damage was sustained to the car, which was recovered by marshals and should be out on track for the start of Qualifying at 15:00 GMT on Saturday.

However, just after he did crash, Hamilton earned Mercedes a €600 fine from stewards after speeding in the pit lane earlier in the session.

He was clocked at 65.6 kph (40.7mph) with the limit for this weekend being 60kph (37.2mph).

Teammate George Russell picked up a €100 fine yesterday for going 0.2kph over the limit.

Hamilton was not the only driver penalised for speeding, as Zhou Guanyu was clocked going over the limit four times, picking up €800 in total for Alfa Romeo, while Logan Sargeant's Williams broke the limit twice, earning the team a €300 fine.

When approached by RacingNews365 for comment, a Mercedes spokesperson confirmed the damage was minor, and limited only to the left-front and front-wing of the W14.
