Poll: What punishment should misbehaving F1 fans be hit with?

Across the Austrian Grand Prix weekend, fans were called out for booing drivers or cheering crashes, but also for their actions against fellow spectators. What punishment should they receive?

While there were plenty of positives to talk about on track at the Austrian Grand Prix, the same could not be said for the actions of some fans off it.

In addition to Lewis Hamilton's qualifying crash being cheered, various accounts of inappropriate fan behaviour at the Red Bull Ring were shared on social media.

Formula 1 moved to call the findings "unacceptable" and vowed to collaborate with organisers and security to investigate the situation.

But what is an appropriate punishment for spectators who misbehave? Should they be banned from attending F1 races for life, or only temporarily?

Let us know in the poll below and share your opinion in the comments.
