Verstappen, in particular, has developed a habit of pulling virtually alongside a rival after the safety car has peeled away and the games begin building up to the restart line.
Following on from the events at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, Wittich has now made clear to the drivers that such antics will not be tolerated in the future.
An updated version of Wittich's event notes read: "In order to avoid the likelihood of accidents before the safety car returns to the pits, from the point at which the lights on the car are turned out, drivers must proceed at a pace which involves no erratic acceleration or braking nor any manoeuvre which is likely to endanger other drivers or impede the restart."
For clarification, the notes provide a diagram of what will be allowed and what won't be tolerated which can be seen below.
