The Australians arriving in court on Thursday.

SEPANG: Nine Australians pleaded guilty at a Sessions Court here for stripping down to their Jalur Gemilang-themed briefs at Sunday’s Petronas Malaysian F1 Grand Prix.

The men, aged 25 to 29, each admitted to causing public nuisance when they shed their clothes to celebrate countryman Daniel Ricciardo’s win after the race.

The nine are Jack Walker, who is policy advisor to Australia's defence minister, Timothy Yates, Tom Whitworth, Tom Laslett, Nick Kelly, Edward Leaney, Branden Stobbs, James Paver and Adam Pasfield.

They were charged under Section 290 of the Penal Code for causing public nuisance, which carries a fine not exceeding RM400.

The men were represented by lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah.
