Eight F1 drivers summoned over yellow flag breach in Austria

Eight Formula 1 drivers have been summoned by the FIA stewards for allegedly not respecting double-waved yellow flags following Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel's late crash.

Listen to this article

Raikkonen and Vettel crashed at Turn 5 while battling for 12th place on the final lap, causing Vettel's Aston Martin car to spear into the wall on the left-hand side of the track.

The incident led to double-waved yellow flags being shown in the crash site on the final lap that many drivers had to pass through en route to the chequered flag.

Following a busy afternoon for the stewards, a spate of bulletins were issued after the race summoning eight drivers for allegedly not slowing down enough for the double waved yellows.

Sergio Perez, Carlos Sainz, Nikita Mazepin, Charles Leclerc, Nicholas Latifi, Antonio Giovinazzi, Daniel Ricciardo and Pierre Gasly are all required to meet the stewards at 10-minute intervals between 17:50 and 19:00 at the Red Bull Ring.

It comes on top of post-race investigations concerning both Vettel and Raikkonen for the last lap collision, as well as a second for Raikkonen for moving under braking.

Williams driver George Russell is also under investigation for moving under braking during his late fight with Fernando Alonso for 10th place.

It means that of the 19 drivers that took the chequered flag in Austria, 10 of them are under investigation.

It leaves the results of the race as provisional, with Sainz, Perez, Ricciardo, Leclerc and Gasly being covered by just 4.7 seconds on-track.

Perez has already received two five-second time penalties in the race following two separate incidents with Charles Leclerc, dropping the Red Bull driver behind Sainz in the final classification.

It also lifted Perez's penalty points count up to eight for the 12-month period, receiving four on Sunday.

Lando Norris has also received two penalty points for his early-race incident with Perez that saw him pick up a five-second time penalty.

He sits on 10 penalty points for the 12-month period, just two shy of a race ban, but two of those will expire ahead of the next race at Silverstone.

Yuki Tsunoda also received two five-second time penalties in the race for cutting the white line at pit entry, while Lance Stroll's five-second penalty was for speeding in the pit lane.

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader Mateschitz shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
