Arrivabene Ferrari

SINGAPORE: Authorities in Singapore on Tuesday (Sep 20) refuted claims that Ferrari’s Formula One team principal Maurizio Arrivabene was fined for discarding a cigarette butt during the Singapore Grand Prix last weekend.

Formula One portal ThisIsF1.com cited Spanish dailies ABC and Marca which reported that Arrivabene was fined “S$1,000 and detained for six hours” for littering.

When contacted by Channel NewsAsia, Singapore's National Environment Agency (NEA) – which catches and hands out fines to litterbugs – said no such incident had taken place. "These reports are untrue and there was no such occurrence,” a spokesman said.
