Lando Norris, McLaren, Istanbul Park, 2020

Lando Norris has been moved back five place on the grid after the stewards ruled he failed to slow down sufficiently for yellow flags.

The stewards handed down the penalty despite acknowledge Norris did not intend to improve his lap time after passing double waved yellow flags during Q1.

“Car four [Norris] approached turn eight which was under double waved yellow flags for car six (Nicholas Latifi),” the stewards explained.

“Telemetry shows that car four slowed in the sector and resumed speed after the incident. Car four then asked his team if he should abort the lap, but was told to stay out because of the rapidly changing track conditions.

“Car four completed the lap, which turned out to be his fastest lap of Q1. While the stewards acknowledge that car four was not attempting to set a quick lap time, due to the changing track conditions he nevertheless did so and thereby breached the referenced regulations.”

The stewards are also investigating George Russell for a yellow flag infringement. Lance Stroll was cleared of failing to slow sufficiently for single yellow flags during Q3.
