Nico Rosberg has been called to see the FIA race stewards over his pole position lap during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday. Rosberg’s final Q3 lap saw him edge out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton for pole position by 0.143 seconds, but was partially completed under double-waved yellow flags shown following a spin for Fernando Alonso. Rosberg was adamant after the session that he lifted enough, and the stewards did not initially investigate it. However, over three-and-a-half hours after qualifying was completed, Rosberg has now been called in over a possible failure to slow for yellow flags during his Q3 lap. Rosberg will meet with the stewards at 19:45 local time in Hungary
This weekend is supposed to be Tony Stewart’s final race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in a Sprint Cup car. The sport thought it witnessed Jeff Gordon’s final run at Indianapolis last year only for him to return this weekend in relief of Dale Earnhardt Jr., who is out because of concussion-like symptoms. “It is something that I thought about since the talk came about Jeff getting back in the car,’’ Stewart said.
