Guenther Steiner pays a  €7,500 penalty to the FIA swear jar!

Guenther Steiner has been fined €7,500 for the comments that he made during the Russian Grand Prix. The Haas F1 boss was not happy with the steward's decision after they gave Kevin Magnussen a five-second penalty and he let everyone know how he felt over the team's radio. 

Steiner broadcast over the radio "... if we didn't have a stupid idiotic steward we would be 8th..." and has therefore been punished for his comments. 

It has been determined that he will be fined €7,500 and because it is the first time an incident like this has happened, the team goes unpunished. However, if it happens again then FIA have said that their sanction will be stricter. 

Haas will hope for a good race weekend and that they can avoid any penalties and get in the points.
