Six Formula 1 drivers, including Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, as well as the Williams team have been summoned over incidents in Mexico City Grand Prix qualifying.

Verstappen, George Russell, and Fernando Alonso have all been called for alleged breaches of Article 37.5 of the Sporting Regulations - by impeding others in the pit-lane exit during Q1.

Logan Sargeant and Hamilton have been called for passing under yellow flags, and failing to slow down for them after the Alonso Q1 spin with Yuki Tsunoda the final driver summoned.

However, this is in relation to Williams leaving equipment in the pit-lane, which Tsunoda hit as he was leaving the garage.

Russell will be reporting to the stewards at 16:45 local time in Mexico, followed by Verstappen, Alonso, Hamilton, Sargeant and Williams/Tsunoda at 15 minute intervals until 18:00 local time.

In their verdicts, all drivers were cleared of their alleged breaches, except Sargeant with he and Williams picking up heavy penalties.
