Lando Norris has been hit with a sizeable fine and a reprimand for crossing the track after retiring from the Miami Grand Prix sprint.

The McLaren driver was punted off at the first corner following an incident between Lewis Hamilton and the two Aston Martins.

After abandoning his car on the exit of Turn 1, he crossed the circuit to get back to the pits without permission from the marshals.

The stewards did not take the issue lightly, and he has been given a €50,000 fine, with half of that suspended for the remainder of the season as it was his first offence.

In the decision document, it read: "During the hearing the driver of Car 4 realized that the situation could have been very dangerous for him.

"The Stewards reinforced the fact that crossing a live track can cause extremely dangerous situations and the drivers have to be very cautious about it."
