Logan Sargeant and Lance Stroll have been called to see Formula 1 stewards after near-misses in Abu Dhabi Grand Prix practice.

As Alpine Jack Doohan driver, standing in for Esteban Ocon to fulfill the mandatory young driver slot, rounded Turn 15 at high speed, Sargeant ducked to the right, just as Doohan did the same.

Fortunately, the duo did not make any contact, but the stewards felt Sargeant's move was an alleged erratic driving.

In the closing stages of the 60-minute session, Stroll forced Isack Hadjar wide at the end of the back straight, and into avoiding action at Turn 6.

The Aston Martin was on the racing line as Hadjar approached at high speed.

The stewards originally called Sargeant at 15:00 local time and Stroll at 15:15, but owing to both Doohan and Hadjar competing in Formula 2, the hearings have been delayed by one hour.
