The Italian team, which took its third win of the season at Marina Bay, was summoned to see the stewards for a breach of article 12.1.1.i of the International Sporting Code.

The FIA said some of Ferrari's team members had behaved "in an inappropriate manner" after the race.

Ferrari mechanics reportedly pushed track officials holding a barrier to join the celebrations.

It is also claimed that a number of team members aggressively pushed aside photographers who were in their usual place in the pit lane awaiting the return of Sebastian Vettel.

Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene has been asked to write an unconditional apology after the incident, but the team has escaped any other sanctions. 

"The Stewards, having received a complaint from the Secretary of the Event on behalf of himself and the members of the security contingent at Post Race Parc Ferme, that some members of Scuderia Ferrari failed to obey instructions of relevant officials and behaved in an inappropriate manner, have heard from the Team Manager, the Secretary of the Event and the Head of the Security Contingent," said the FIA in a statement.

"The Team Representative has offered to have the Team Principal send a written unconditional apology to those who were affected and to give an assurance that there will not be a recurrence."
