Lando Norris has been hit with a reprimand from Monaco Grand Prix stewards after an incident with George Russell in practice.

Exiting the tunnel, Norris was on a fast lap with Russell on a cool-down circuit, with the former aborting his lap after feeling he was blocked.

After abandoning the attempt, Norris moved across and nearly made contact with Russell to "express his displeasure", according to the stewards. 

Whilst the stewards felt the move was "not dangerous", they felt "this sort of action could potentially lead to a dangerous situation" and should be avoided.

As a result, Norris was hit with a reprimand as no further action was taken against Russell.

World champion Max Verstappen was also summoned by the stewards, again for an alleged breach of Article 33.4 of the Sporting Regulations, driving unnecessarily slowly - for which he received no penalty.
