Lewis Hamilton could 'face grid penalty' as FIA stewards confirm Abu Dhabi investigation

Date:


However, a marshal didn’t wave a red flag until after the Mercedes driver was through the corner.  Moments later, Damon Hill defended Hamilton, suggesting it would have been difficult for the seven-time champion to change his actions. Hill added: “He was already moving, He wasn’t able to slow down.” 

Jenson Button assessed a grid penalty would hurt Hamilton’s race a lot as he aims to secure his first win of the season. The 2009 champion also hinted he could have made the mistake himself as it looked like a yellow flag. 

He told Sky Sports F1: “To me it looked like it was a yellow flag… There’s a yellow flag on the right hand side. You didn’t see [the red flag] as a red light board from the front. It doesn’t look red, it looks yellow. On the back of the board it was red., So it should have been red but it looked like the front of the board was a yellow.”
