Lewis Hamilton faces investigation after Azerbaijan Grand Prix qualifying


Lewis Hamilton will be investigated after qualifying for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix for driving too slowly. The FIA will look into whether the Mercedes star slowed at turn 12 before his last flying lap.

Hamilton was made aware of the investigation on team radio and seemed angry at the decision. He simply responded: “I don’t know what you expect from me sometimes.”

Footage from the McLaren of Lando Norris showed Hamilton crawling around the track with both McLaren’s stuck behind. Norris was told on his team radio that Hamilton had to watch his delta and predicted the seven-time champion would get in trouble as he was the lead car. 

His engineer said: “He’s got to keep an eye on his delta, if he doesn’t he’ll be in trouble. He’s the lead car, he’ll get in trouble.” Sky Sports F1 commentator Paul di Resta claimed the stewards would ‘not like’ what Hamilton had done.

If found guilty, Hamilton will likely be handed a penalty which could see him start further down the grid.
