Race winner Nico Rosberg has been called to the stewards at the British Grand Prix.
The German stormed to a narrow race victory over Red Bull’s Mark Webber, but now Stewards have summoned the three-time race winner to their office on claims that he failed to slow down under yellow flags.
“The driver and a team representative are required to report to the Stewards at 16.40 in relation to the incident below”, reads the FIA statement. “Reason: Appearing to not slow for Yellow Flags in turns 3 to 5 at 14.06”.
Turns 3 to 5 were the turns were drivers were warned to slow down and avoid the flags as several major delaminations occured in that sector, namely race-leader Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Felipe Massa.
The standard penalty for ignoring yellow flags is a drive through penalty. If Rosberg is penalised, it will be translated to a twenty-second time penalty which would promote Mark Webber to first, Fernando Alonso to second and homeboy Lewis Hamilton to third.
