Lewis Hamilton has been summoned for a second, separate alleged transgression during final practice in Saudi Arabia.

Hamilton was summoned after FP3 for allegedly ignoring double waved yellow flags, and has now been summoned once again for a high-profile incident towards the end of the practice session.

Hamilton was driving slowly through the sweeps of the first sector when Haas' Nikita Mazepin encountered the Mercedes. Mazepin had to dart off the track to avoid ploughing into Hamilton, with the FIA's Michael Masi immediately picking up on the incident.

While there are rules in place to ensure drivers don't drive too slowly, they only apply in the third sector of the lap.

Hamilton has now been served with a summons for the incident, with the stewards calling him up for impeding another driver.

"[An] alleged breach of Article 31.5 of the FIA Formula 1 Sporting Regulations, (unnecessary impeding) at Turn 8 at 17:39," read the summons from the stewards.

Hamilton, as well as a representative from Mercedes, will visit the stewards at 19:00 local time (16:00 UK time), one hour ahead of qualifying.
