Instead, they will clarify the rules and guidelines surrounding what drivers can and can’t wear on the podium and before the race.
Earlier, the BBC had reported that an FIA spokesperson said Hamilton could face an investigation and potential punishment.
Specifically, there were concerns that the Mercedes driver may have breached article 1.2 of the FIA statutes.
“The FIA shall refrain from manifesting discrimination on account of race, skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic or social origin, language, religion, philosophical or political opinion, family situation or disability in the course of its activities and from taking any action in this respect,” the statute reads.
A poll recently conducted by Formula1News.co.uk found that 78 percent of F1 fans want Hamilton to be punished for the incident, with 29 percent of those respondents calling for the Championship leader to be awarded a one-race ban.
