Austrian Grand Prix – Red Bull Racing have lodged an appeal to have a hearing regarding why Lewis Hamilton went unpunished after qualifying on Saturday.
Lewis Hamilton was summoned before race stewards after qualifying on Saturday, after failing to slow for yellow flags at the end of Q3. This was because Valtteri Bottas slid off the track on his flying lap, with Hamilton encountering the yellow flag a few seconds later.
Hamilton went without punishment for the incident, as the stewards found that he had been shown conflicting information by the LED panels and marshal flag posts.
However, Red Bull aren’t happy with this decision and have sought a hearing with the race stewards to re-review the incident.
A statement from the FIA said: “Hearing to review a decision (document 33), petition of review submitted by Aston Martin Red Bull Racing,” with the review set for 13:45 local time.
If the decision is reversed, a grid penalty could be applied to Lewis Hamilton. This would result in a front row grid start for Verstappen.
