Two F1 teams have been issued heavy fines after being deemed guilty of impeding incidents during the first free practice session at the British Grand Prix.

Both Red Bull and Aston Martin were summoned to the stewards after the session, having been caught up in incidents during the 60-minute outing.

At the end of the session, Isack Hadjar, who stepped into Sergio Perez's car for FP1, held up McLaren's Lando Norris through Turn 2.

Norris was forced to stamp on his brakes to avoid running into the back of the rookie driver.

“It was obvious that the driver was not given timely and appropriate warning of the approach of Car 4 [Norris],” read a statement from the stewards.

“The driver of Car 4 was forced to brake heavily and leave the track to avoid a collision. The Team of Car 37 [Hadjar] conceded that it had not provided the necessary advice to its driver.”

As a result, Red Bull was fined €20,000, with Hadjar delivering a formal warning.

Aston Martin was also flagged for an incident with Charles Leclerc, with Lance Stroll deemed guilty of holding up the Monegasque driver through the high-speed Maggots and Becketts section.

“The Team conceded that it had not provided timely and adequate radio information on the approach of Car 16. Car 16 was forced to take avoiding action,” read a stewards' statement.

Aston Martin was fined €15,000, while Stroll was also issued a warning.
