Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen could face disqualification from Monaco Grand Prix qualifying, after the scrutineering found fault with their rear wings.

According to the document from the technical delegate: "The uppermost rear wing element adjustable positions were checked on car numbers 20 and 27."

Due to the outermost areas of the "adjustable elements... exceeding the maximum allowed 85mm" on the left and right-hand sides of both cars, the Haas pair have been referred to the stewards, as it is not in compliance with TR Article 3.10.10 h.

If found guilty, Hulkenberg could lose his P12 result and Magnussen his P15. That would mean both drivers would require special dispensation to take part in the Monaco Grand Prix. 

Although, that would likely be granted. In which case, both will probably start from the pit lane.

The team representative was summoned to see the stewards at 19:15 local time.
