Lewis Hamilton, Charles Leclerc and several other drivers are under investigation, following separate incidents in the closing stages of third practice ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.

The first pair summoned to the stewards are Hamilton and Lance Stroll, after a collision at turn five. 

Hamilton had impeded Stroll on the entry to the corner, however, on the exit of turn five after moving out of the way, Stroll forced the Mercedes driver wide and made contact with his W15, whilst Hamilton was waving to apologise. 

A few minutes later and a separate impeding incident unfolded between Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris, who have also both been summoned to the stewards. 

Norris was on the inside of the circuit on the run into turn six to be out of Leclerc's way; however, the Monegasque felt he was impeded and suddenly cut across the front of the McLaren driver and made contact with his front wing. 

A further incident involving Max Verstappen was noted but was quickly cleared as no further action by the stewards.
