Stake has been handed a €1,000 fine by Monaco Grand Prix stewards after Valtteri Bottas sped in the Monaco Grand Prix pit-lane. 

The Finn was clocked at 74.6kph - 46.35mph - just one minute into the session in Monte Carlo, exceeding the 60kph - 37.28mph - limit by 14.6kph - 9.07mph. 

It is a breach of Article 34.7 of the Sporting Regulations, with Bottas finishing the first session in 12th as team-mate Zhou Guanyu triggered a brief red-flag for debris following a wall-strike at Sainte Devote.
