Stroll pole in doubt due to yellow-flag investigation

Stroll pole in doubt due to yellow-flag investigation

Lance Stroll's maiden pole position in Formula 1 has been cast into doubt after the Racing Point driver was summoned to the Stewards for allegedly ignoring yellow-flags during Q3 for the Turkish Grand Prix.

Stroll set a blistering lap to snatch pole away from Max Verstappen, with Sergio Perez completing a Racing Point one-three in a chaotic qualifying session at Istanbul Park that was delayed twice by red flags and saw multiple yellow flag periods throughout.

But the Canadian has been called to the Stewards office for "allegedly non-respecting yellow flags at 16:48 at turn 7 and alleged non-compliance with Race Director’s Event Notes [regarding single-waved yellow flags]."

Stroll was told over the team radio to keep pushing as there were only single-waved yellow flags present, unlike the double-waved scenario that caused controversy at the end of Q1 when Nicholas Latifi found himself beached at turn eight.

If Stroll is deemed to be in breach of the regulations, he will be handed a three-place grid drop, promoting Verstappen and Perez to the front row and Alex Albon to third, alongside Stroll in fourth.
