Sebastian Vettel has been told he faces "very strong" punishment if he commits an offence similar to his collision with Lewis Hamilton in Azerbaijan, a BBC report said.

Vettel was given a 10-second stop-and-go penalty in the race in Baku for deliberately driving into Hamilton.

Governing body the FIA decided at a hearing on Monday not to take more action against the Ferrari driver.

"I would have been uncomfortable to go further than what has been done," said FIA president Jean Todt."

I would be very comfortable to be very strong if it happens again. He knows that.

"Todt did not specify what he meant by a "very strong" punishment, but it can only mean a disqualification from at least one race.

Todt, who was talking to BBC Radio 5 live, said: "Clearly I wish that he would have been able to control himself better."

Vettel was also put on a warning after last year's Mexican Grand Prix, when he swore over the radio at FIA F1 director Charlie Whiting because he was unhappy about a lack of action over the driving of Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Todt said: "People say he had already a warning after Mexico. This is true, but it was a completely different matter. He lost control and was insulting one of the stewards. It was a different category."

So on the first category he has no more joker, on the second category he has no more joker," Todt concluded. (BBC)
