Aston Martin topped the group for fines, paying off €36,600, with Sebastian Vettel responsible for the majority of the fees.

His offences, however, are some of the most unique out of the whole paddock. Whilst he picked up €600 and €300 fines for pit lane speeding, and a €5000 fine for an unsafe release, the offences which cost him the most is for bad behaviour and riding a scooter.

Due to ‘behaviour during the Driver’ meeting’ at the Austrian qualifying, Vettel landed himself a €25,000 fine, one of the most expensive penalties on our list. He also drove a scooter on track within the five-minute window after P1 in Australia, resulting in a €5,000 fine.

Mercedes came a close second with a total fine of € 35,700, whilst Ferrari followed in third place with € 35,000.
