The stewards of the Austrian Grand Prix have summoned Sebastian Vettel to a hearing related to a drivers’ meeting which took place yesterday.
Two drivers’ meetings are held during sprint race weekends. The incident in which the alleged infringement involving Vettel took place occured after yesterday’s qualifying session.
The article of the International Sporting Code which Vettel is alleged to have violation forbids “any words, deeds or writings that have caused moral injury or loss to the FIA, its bodies, its members or its executive officers, and more generally on the interest of motor sport and on the values defended by the FIA.”
The same article was invoked against Red Bull team principal Christian Horner last year when he was given an official warning for criticising a flag marshal after qualifying for the Qatar Grand Prix. It was also one of several clauses Russian kart racer Artem Severiukhin was found to have violated for a much more serious offence earlier this year.
