“Max Verstappen will attend the Marrakech Eprix as a result of the stewards’ decision at the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix,” the FIA said in a statement.
“Verstappen will spend the day as an observer to the stewards, closely following their work at a top-level international motor sport event as part of three educational and informative approach taken by the FIA in this matter.”
Verstappen was ordered to “perform two days of public service at the direction of the FIA” after repeatedly shoving Esteban Ocon following the race, which took place two months ago today. Ocon had collided with Verstappen while being lapped by the race leader.
