Surprise Turkish GP polesitter Lance Stroll has been called to stewards for a potential yellow flag infringement during the chaotic wet Turkish GP qualifying session.

Stewards are looking at whether Stroll slowed sufficiently for single-waved yellow flags in the closing minutes of his pole-winning Q3. Team-mate Sergio Perez had triggered yellow flags by running off the circuit.

McLaren’s Lando Norris, who qualified 11th on a disappointing Saturday for the British team, is also facing for stewards for an alleged yellow flag infringement in Q1 when Nicholas Latifi spun off in the Williams.
