Lando Norris is currently having coffee with the stewards. The Briton was immediately called after the first free practice to declare himself.
Norris would have overtaken a car during the practice session this morning at the time of the yellow flags. The yellow flurries are brought to life in Formula 1 when a dangerous situation arises, for example by a crashed or stationary car on the track. The drivers are then expected to clear their gas, but the McLarendriver would have passed another car instead. If the stewards decide that Norris has indeed overtaken someone at the time of the yellow flag, it could potentially result in a grid penalty for next Sunday’s race.
So became Lewis Hamilton last Sunday three places after being put back on the starting field, after he had not left his gas on Saturday in qualifying. Even then, the yellow flags were waved because of teammate Valtteri Bottas with his Mercedes had gotten into the grass. The stewards got rid of the incident first, but after Red Bull Racing the six-time world champion was thrown on the receipt.
