Red Bull have been punished by way of a €300 fine ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix for speeding in the pit lane.

Sergio Perez, who is fighting for his first Monaco victory, was caught travelling at 63km/h (3km/h above the pit lane speed limit) during Friday's Free Practice 1 session.

Having received a report from the Race Director, the stewards decided to slap Red Bull with a fine and no further punishment.

Tsunoda and Bottas also punished for speeding

Red Bull were not alone in landing fines for speeding in the pit lane, with sister team AlphaTauri and rivals Alfa Romeo also punished.

Yuki Tsunoda was clocked running at 16.4km/h above the speed limit, resulting in a €1,000 fine.
