The man who caused a second Safety Cary period in the Singapore Grand Prixย by taking a stroll on track was charged in court on Tuesday, following his arrest by local police on Sunday.

Named Yogvitam Pravin Dhokia, the British national was accused of โ€œacting so rashly as to endanger the personal safety of the drivers involved in the race, to wit, by crossing the race track while the race is ongoing.โ€

The 27-year-old had sneaked through a gap in Marina Bay Circuitโ€™s fencing and ended up on Esplanade Drive between Turn 13 and 14.

If convicted, Dhokia faces up to six month in jail and/or a fine of 2,500 SGD (around 1,150GBP).

The next hearing of the case will take place on October 6.
