Another discussion in F1? Max Verstappen must report to stewards for GP Qatar on Sunday
Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull) has to answer to the stewards on Sunday morning prior to the Grand Prix Formula 1 in Qatar, organizer Formula One confirmed on Saturday.
The World Cup leader may have ignored a yellow flag on Saturday. The 24-year-old Verstappen is expected at 11 a.m. Belgian time. The race starts at 3 p.m.
The incident occurred in the latter part of the qualifiers. Verstappen was on his last fast lap when ahead of him Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri) had a problem with his front wing, causing him to slow down and then also stop on a straight section of the track. A dangerous situation and the procedure with the yellow flag followed, for which the pilots had to reduce speed on the circuit. If the stewards judge that Verstappen ignored that order, a grid penalty threatens.
Verstappen clocked the second fastest time in qualifying. Lewis Hamilton was by far the fastest driver and took pole position.
