Max Verstappen has just been on the mat with the stewards of the FIA. The Dutchman might have crossed the white line when leaving the pit lane, something that is not allowed. However, the stewards have now concluded that Verstappen will not be punished.
Verstappen made a pit stop during the race and switched to intermediate tires. When leaving the pit lane there is a white line for a few meters, where the driver must stay inside when he leaves the pit lane. However, Verstappen came out of the pit lane with cold tires and started to slither. It seemed that his tires crossed the white line, but this was difficult to say based on the television images. The FIA also noticed the moment and recorded it for after the race. The images have now been viewed and spoken with Verstappen. The verdict: there is no punishment.
Verstappen did not manage to stay within the white lines of the pit exit, but also did not completely cross it. So he did ride it, but that is not enough to get a penalty. The stewards have therefore ruled that Verstappen is going free and retains his sixth place. It is little consolation for the Dutchman, who had hoped for more today.
