McLaren and Williams have been summoned to the stewards for a hearing following McLaren's right of review petition over Lando Norris' Canadian Grand Prix penalty.

The Briton was handed a five-second penalty for "unsportsmanlike behaviour" under the Safety Car, where he drove slowly on his way to the pits. As a result of the punishment, Norris dropped from P9 to P13.

It was announced on Friday at the Austrian Grand Prix that McLaren had lodged a right of review petition over the penalty, and it has since been confirmed that the Woking-based squad are required to report to the stewards on the morning of Sunday 2 July for a hearing.

A representative from Williams has also been summoned to the stewards as part of the hearing.

The hearing will be in two parts, with the first to hear evidence in order to determine whether there is a "significant and relevant new element which was unavailable to the party seeking the review at the time of the decision concerned".

If the stewards determine that this element exists, a second part of the hearing will be held.
