Furious Magnussen demands FIA implement new yellow-flag rule change
Kevin Magnussen has called on the FIA to implement a new rule change surrounding double-waved yellow flags following a treacherous qualifying session at Istanbul Park.
Magnussen was left fuming when he was knocked out of the first session in qualifying after slowing under yellows on his flying lap, claiming other drivers failed to lift off and went unpunished after spins involving Williams driver Nicholas Latifi and AlphaTauri's Daniil Kvyat.
The Dane, though, was far from happy at the time as he said: "If this is the norm, if this is normal then I can't justify backing off. I'd rather get through and get a penalty later, so it's dangerous."
The penalty for Norris, in tandem with a three-place grid drop for team-mate Carlos Sainz for impeding, means Magnussen will start from 14th after originally qualifying 16th.
