Lance Stroll was issued with a warning after allegedly not respecting yellow flags during Formula 1’s Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
Stroll classified in seventh place to record his best result of the 2021 season.
Stewards investigated Stroll post-race after he allegedly did not respect the yellow flags that were displayed when Nikita Mazepin halted his Haas VF-21 at the exit of Ascari due to a power unit issue.
But while Stroll was warned he avoided any penalty that could have impacted his result.
“Although the marshalling system was not showing yellows, the marshals were showing yellow flags from the entry to Turn 8 to the exit of Turn 10,” read a report.
“There was one flag point that was not easily visible to the drivers that was showing a double yellow, however this was parallel to an easily visible flag point that was showing a single yellow.
“The stewards were able to determine that the driver slowed as required in the regulation however could have done so earlier.”
Stroll felt that seventh was the maximum result possible for Aston Martin in the circumstances.
“We were quick in the corners, down on straight line speed, but we made it work,” he said.
“I think the Ferraris were a bit quicker so we couldn’t have got them in front.”
