Lando Norris has been moved back five place on the grid after the stewards ruled he failed to slow down sufficiently for yellow flags.
“Car four [Norris] approached turn eight which was under double waved yellow flags for car six (Nicholas Latifi),” the stewards explained.
“Telemetry shows that car four slowed in the sector and resumed speed after the incident. Car four then asked his team if he should abort the lap, but was told to stay out because of the rapidly changing track conditions.
“Car four completed the lap, which turned out to be his fastest lap of Q1. While the stewards acknowledge that car four was not attempting to set a quick lap time, due to the changing track conditions he nevertheless did so and thereby breached the referenced regulations.”
Norris was one of several drivers who passed the scene of Latifi’s crash. Following a request from race director Michael Masi, the stewards examined the driving of all drivers involved and deemed them to be compliant with the regulations.
These were Daniel Ricciardo and Pierre Gasly, who passed single waved yellow flags at the scene, and Kevin Magnussen, Valtteri Bottas, Daniil Kvyat, Lance Stroll, Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton, who passed double waved yellow flags.
