George Russell, Williams, Istanbul Park, 2020

George Russell has become the second driver to receive a five-place grid penalty for failing to reduce his speed sufficiently for yellow flags.

The stewards ruled Russell “did not have his car fully under control” as he passed Daniil Kvyat when the AlphaTauri driver spun off at turn two during Q1.

After speaking to the Williams driver and examining video and other evidence, the stewards penalised Russell and gave him three penalty points on his licence, taking him to a total of six.

“Car 63 [Russell] approached turn two, which was under double yellow flags for car 26 [Kvyat] who was spinning off track on the outside of the turn.

“While Car 63 made an attempt to slow when encountering the double yellow flags, in the opinion of the stewards he slowed insufficiently and did not have his car under full control as he approached and then passed Car 26.

“This lack of full control clearly breaches the regulations. The driver also set a meaningful lap time on this lap which in and of itself breaches the requirements set out by the race director’s notes.”
