Five Formula 1 drivers have been summoned to see the stewards after multiple incidents during Dutch Grand Prix Qualifying.

In a wet-dry session at Zandvoort, Max Verstappen emerged to claim a third straight pole in front of his home crowd, as Lewis Hamilton was dumped out in Q2 after mistiming his final lap in the drying conditions.

However, Hamilton was the victim of a clutch of impeding incidents in throughout the session that the stewards feel warrant further investigations.

Lance Stroll has been summoned for impeding the Mercedes driver during Q1 at Turn 13, and will report along with the Aston Martin team representative at 16:45 local time (15:45 UK time).

Yuki Tsunoda has also been called for impeding Hamilton - also at Turn 13 in Q2, with the two set to start together on the seventh row with Hamilton ahead in 13th.

Tsunoda and the AlphaTauri representative must see the stewards at 17:00 local time (16:00 UK).

The other incident under investigation by stewards involves Carlos Sainz and Oscar Piastri in Q1.

Exiting the pits, Sainz moved across the track at Turn 2, and unsighted, squeezed Piastri off the track.

At 17:20 local time (16:20 UK), both Sainz and Piastri as well as the team representatives must report for an alleged dangerous manoeuvre by the Ferrari driver.

In the verdicts, Tsunoda was penalised and handed a three-place grid drop by stewards while Stroll escaped sanction for the Hamilton incidents.

As for Sainz, a reprimand was handed down and Ferrari was fined.
