While I’m not sure he spent it “in service”, he did spend it with the stewards to see how they operate. Which is very apt for him generally, if not for that specific incident.

Day at Formula E would have to qualify as "Cruel and unusual punishment".

The ‘punishment’ was two days community service, so there’s still time to see him serving meals in a homeless centre.....

Frankly, I don't see that as a punishment at all. Some fans of the series (Formula E in this case, but true for every series in general I think - maybe even every sport) would love to spend some time with the stewards, the organization, and the general 'behind the scenes' thing. Now, he gets that as a "punishment" ?

I also fail to see the "public service" part in this punishment.

I think it's more 'lip service' to punishment really...
