Valtteri Bottas has been ordered to see Bahrain Grand Prix stewards after a bizarre rules breach.

At 19:30pm local time (16:30pm UK), Bottas and a Stake team representative must attend over an alleged breach of Article 37.2 of the sporting regulations.

The summons reveals that Bottas allegedly exiting the pit-lane with the red light still on at 17:59.56, some four seconds before the official start of the session.

Bottas enjoyed a strong opening practice in the striking new machine, posting the 10th fastest time as team-mate Zhou Guanyu's session was disrupted by a brake problem.
