World Champion Lewis Hamilton under investigation for two incidents
World Champion Lewis Hamilton has been summoned to the stewards at Formula 1’s Austrian Grand Prix after two separate incidents during Q3.
Hamilton qualified second, just 0.012s behind Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas, as the squad dominated the session.
But Bottas’ error on his final Q3 push lap brought out the yellow flags and Hamilton has been summoned after allegedly failing to slow during this sector of the track.
The first incident occurred during the last passing fragment at 15:52 when Hamilton was on his first flying lap. The Briton has purportedly left the track at Turn 10 on his lap when he posted a period of 1m03.061. On the off chance that stewards conclude that he surpassed as far as possible and in this manner neglected to follow the 21.1a passage of the Race Director’s Event Notes, his time will be erased. Be that as it may, as he figured out how to improve his first lap time on his subsequent flying lap, the choice would not influence the beginning network.
Hamilton is under scrutiny for another occurrence. The Briton was directly behind his partner Valtteri Bottas in the perishing minutes of the passing meeting when the Finn committed an error and ran into the rock trap. In spite of yellow banners, the Briton neglected to back off and posted an individual greatest second division time.
The second area of the Red Bull Ring is separated into seven smaller than normal segments of which Hamilton posted in two ones the most perfectly awesome time while in another three he set individual best scaled down division times. Bottas committed his error in the fifth smaller than normal segment where Hamilton set an individual time and accomplished his subsequent total best time in the seventh little division of the center piece of the track where yellow banners were waved.
