Lewis Hamilton has to fear grid penalty after ignoring double yellow flag and hindering opponents


Reigning and seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) has to answer to the stewards on Saturday for an incident during the third free practice session for the F1 GP of Saudi Arabia, the penultimate round of the season.


The Briton has to answer for ignoring a double yellow flag and hindering Pierre Gasly and Nikita Mazepin. Hamilton has to fear a grid penalty for that.

Max Verstappen was given a grid penalty two weeks ago after the qualifying race for the Qatar Grand Prix for ignoring a double yellow flag. The Dutchman did not reduce his speed as prescribed in a dangerous situation. He had to move five places back from the grid for the race.
