Sebastian Vettel to face the stewards due to 'his behaviour' during meeting

Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel will visit the stewards on Saturday evening, having been summoned on unusual grounds…

Vettel will face the stewards at 6pm local time (5pm UK) in Austria, with the four-time World Champion summoned for an “alleged breach of Article 12.2.1 f) of the International Sporting Code and Article 20.1 of the FIA Formula 1 Sporting Regulations – Behaviour at the Drivers’ Meeting.”

The article in question suggests that Vettel is being brought before the stewards – which include former Grand Prix driver Enrique Bernoldi – on the grounds of “Any words, deeds or writings that have caused moral injury or loss to the FIA, its bodies, its members or its executive officers, and more generally on the interest of motorsport and on the values defended by the FIA.”

What Vettel is alleged to have done has not been made clear by the FIA, and PlanetF1 have approached Aston Martin for comment on the situation.

Vettel retired from the Saturday Sprint Qualifying race at the Red Bull Ring, having started from the back. Vaulting up to 14th in the early stages, Vettel was tagged by Williams’ Alex Albon while battling for position. Aston Martin chose to retire Vettel following the incident, due to damage on his car. Albon was given a five-second time penalty for the clash.
