Two drivers have been investigated for impeding Lewis Hamilton, after he got eliminated in Q2 of Dutch Grand Prix Qualifying. One of them has been penalised.

Lewis Hamilton got eliminated in Q2 of Dutch Grand Prix Qualifying, and he will be starting the race from P13.

However, after the session two drivers have been called to the stewards for allegedly impeding Hamilton during the session.

The two drivers are Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll and AlphaTauri’s Yuki Tsunoda. The incident with Tsunoda happened in Lewis’ final Q2 flying lap, so this might have caused his early exit.

Lewis, however, said that Tsunoda’s impeding “didn’t make any difference”, and he said his exit happened due to just being “slow”.

After concluding their investigation, the stewards decided Tsunoda was guilty of impeding, and he was given a three-place grid penalty.

Stroll, one the other hand, was found not guilty, as the stewards decided his “behaviour did not rise to the level of unnecessarily impeding”.

Since Tsunoda originally qualified in P14, his grid drop will not change anything for Lewis, but had Stroll been penalised, Lewis would have been promoted to P11.
