Fernando Alonso has been summoned to see the stewards following qualifying at the Turkish Grand Prix due to an alleged yellow flag infringement.
Alonso took his best qualifying result of the year in Istanbul, ending the session in sixth place.
However, the stewards have called on the two-time world champion to appear before them in relation to an incident that took place during Q1.
Alonso has been called due to an “alleged breach of Appendix H Article 2.5.5. b) of the FIA International Sporting Code, not respecting double waved yellow flags at 15:03”.
The incident occurred at Turn 1, with double yellow flags waving when Max Verstappen spun as he began his first flying lap in Q1.
However, Verstappen was back up to speed and rounding Turn 2 when Alonso arrived at the corner.
Should the Spaniard be found guilty of not slowing sufficiently, he faces a grid penalty for Sunday’s grand prix.
