Nikita Mazepin's dangerous weave in front of Haas team-mate Michael Schumacher in the closing stages of Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix is to be reviewed by FIA race director Michael Masi.
Mazepin drew the ire of Schumacher as the duo hurtled down the long straight at the Baku City Circuit at 200mph.
As Schumacher pulled out of the slipstream of Mazepin, the Russian made a sudden move to his right in a bid to block the German.
It led to hand gestures from Schumacher as he eventually passed Mazepin and an angry radio outburst as he said: "What the f**k was that? Honestly, does he want to kill us? Wow! Wow!"
Team principal Guenther Steiner revealed post-race the air had been cleared and the team was moving on.
Masi was questioned about the matter after the race, although conceded to not witnessing it at the time due to the volume of events at the front of the field as the two-lap sprint race unfolded following the red-flag delay caused by Max Verstappen's crash.
"To be fair, we were looking at the front so I didn't actually see the incident myself, so I can't comment on it," said Masi.
"I'd prefer not to, not having seen it, and I'll have a look at it in the fresh light of day.
"If necessary, I will have a chat with the team and driver concerned."
An FIA spokesperson has since confirmed that if Masi has viewed the incident then he will discuss it directly with the team and Mazepin at the French Grand Prix.
