Lewis Hamilton has been formally required to attend the stewards at the Qatar Grand Prix after the George Russell collision.

On the opening lap at Lusail, the two drivers collided at Turn 1, with Hamilton out of the race while Russell continued and was able to finish fourth.

However, after climbing from the car, Hamilton crossed the track, which is prohibited by Article 26.7b of the Sporting Regulations.

He will be required to attend the stewards at 22:05 local time in Qatar - 20:05 UK.

The seven-time champion later admitted "full responsibility" for the incident.
