A Formula E driver has hit out at the FIA's 'community service' for Max Verstappen.

Dutchman Verstappen duly served his punishment by attending the weekend's Formula E race in Morocco as "an observer to the stewards".

The 21-year-old said he enjoyed it.

Enjoying punishment

Verstappen said: "I've of course followed Formula E a bit on TV but I've never been in the paddock, and I really enjoyed the day,". 

Formula E driver Sam Bird said the fact Formula E was used as a punishment was an "injustice" to the electric single seater series.

"I mean to call coming to a Formula E race community service, I think does Formula E a bit of a injustice," he told The Sun.

"This is an amazing category and people pay to come and watch us, it shouldn't be a punishment to come here."
