Five drivers have been summoned to the race stewards following the Australian Grand Prix over potential rule breaches.

Charles Leclerc was the winner in Melbourne on Sunday in a race that saw cars up and down the grid fight hard for places.

In the aftermath, Kevin Magnussen, Fernando Alonso, Yuki Tsunoda, Pierre Gasly and Mick Schumacher have all been called to Race Control.

Three drivers summoned for "potentially dangerous" driving

Schumacher, Tsunoda and Gasly will be first to report to the stewards (17:15 local time) for an alleged breach of Article 55.5 of the Sporting Regulations, which reads "no car may be driven unnecessarily slowly, erratically or in a manner which could be deemed potentially dangerous" whilst behind the Safety Car.

Alonso and Magnussen will report to the stewards shortly after (17:40 local time) with Magnussen alleged to have force Alonso off the track.

Lance Stroll became the first driver to be punished for his on-track action in the Australian GP when he was hit with a five-second time penalty for making "more than one change of direction to defend a position".
