The 27-year-old appeared in court and was accused of committing a rash act which endangered the safety of the Formula 1 drivers after he strolled across Esplanade Drive near Turn 13, the court said.

British national Yogvitam Pravin Dhokia's passport was impounded, as he was unable to pay a sum of 15,000 Singaporean dollars.

The report said, if convicted, Dhokia could be jailed for up to six months and/or fined up to 2,500 Singaporean dollars.

The next hearing of the case is scheduled for October 6.
