Lewis Hamilton’s second put on the Austrian GP grid could be under threat with the Mercedes driver under investigation after qualifying.

The Mercedes driver was summoned to the stewards on two counts on Saturday night – allegedly failing to slow for yellow flags on his final lap after polesitter Valtteri Bottas went off the track, as well as running wide off the circuit early in the day in Q3 at Turn 10.

It may be the alleged yellow-flag infringement which could cause Hamilton problems with regards to his grid penalty if found guilty.
