In Saturday’s qualifying for the Austrian Grand Prix, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton sped under yellow lights following Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas spinning off the track.

Hamilton explained that he didn’t see the yellow lights and thought that Bottas had just gone wide and off the track.

Formula 1 stewards decided to not give him a grid penalty, only for Red Bull to protest the decision and present new evidence.

The hearing took place less than 2 hours before the start of the race and Hamilton was given a three place grid penalty, putting him down to 5th position.

As a result, Max Verstappen, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon will all move up a place.

The race is starting at 14:10 BST.
