According to the AFP news agency, 27-year-old Yogvitam Pravin Dhokia, who is facing criminal charges after walking onto the circuit during the race, returned to jail in order to reduce the anticipated term.

"He chose to go back into remand," his lawyer Jeremy Mark Pereira told AFP.

"He went back voluntarily."

Dhokia has already spent 10 days in jail after he was arrested during the September 20 event at the Marina Bay circuit.

He was charged with committing a "rash act" and could spend up to six months in jail.

A court hearing is scheduled for November 3.
