The Maranello-based team was summoned to see the stewards following complaints that Ferrari staff had forced their way past security in parc ferme after the race and then roughed up photographers as they barged their way through.

After speaking to the stewards after the race, Ferrari was told there would be no further sanction if Arrivabene apologised for what happened.

A statement at the time said: “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.

"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."

The FIA has confirmed that Arrivabene has duly written to the governing body to express his regret about what happened – and promise there will be no repeat in the future.

An FIA spokesman told Motorsport.com: “An apology from Maurizio was received and as far as I'm aware that is the end of the matter.”
