Singapore – Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber both received a ticking-off Sunday after the Australian hilariously hitched a lift on his rival's Ferrari at the end of the Singapore Grand Prix.
Trackside video footage showed Webber, who abandoned his smoking Red Bull at the end of the race, running on to the track and flagging down Alonso during his post-race parade lap.
Webber then jumped on to the side of the Ferrari and was driven back to the pits, waving to the crowd as he went.
The incident prompted guffaws, but it was viewed more seriously by Formula One officials who hauled both drivers in front of the stewards and later issued reprimands.
Webber, who is quitting Formula One this year, was told off for going on the track without permission, while Alonso was slapped on the wrist because another car had to swerve around him when he stopped.
However, both drivers escaped more serious punishment. – Sapa-AFP
