Drivers Called To Stewards Office

Five drivers have been called to the stewards office following the Canadian Grand Prix qualifying session.

Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen, the Toro Rosso duo of Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, McLaren’s Sergio Perez and Williams’ Pastor Maldonado all lined up incorrectly at the restart of Q2, following the brief red flag which was brought out as a result of Felipe Massa’s turn 3 shunt.

Today’s qualifying session saw both Toro Rosso’s make it through to Q3 while both McLaren’s spectacularly failed to progress to the top-ten shootout. On the restart, the drivers scrambled to get track position, with what is supposed to be single-file in the pit-lane, turning into a three abreast row across the exit – something the FIA tends to take very seriously.

However, penalties for the drivers involved would be very unlikely. If the stewards were to take action, it would be probably be nothing more than a reprimand.
