Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg has been summoned to the race stewards after making contact with McLaren's Lando Norris in practice for the São Paulo Grand Prix.

The German was coasting on a slow lap when Norris made a move to the inside at Junção with just under half the session remaining.

Seemingly unaware of Norris' presence, Hulkenberg turned into the corner, his left front wheel making contact with the right rear of the Briton's car.

Though both drivers escaped from the incident without damage, the stewards have summoned Hulkenberg to explain his actions ahead of the afternoon's qualifying session.

Hulkenberg finished fourth in the weekend's only practice hour, having been one of the few drivers to complete Soft tyre running.

Norris, on the other hand, was 19th having not switched to the red side-walled tyres.
