Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner has been summoned to see the FIA stewards on Saturday afternoon at the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix
The Italian had blasted the quality of stewarding at last weekend's Monaco Grand Prix, after Nico Hulkenberg was penalised for his move on Logan Sargeant at the start of the race.
Steiner claimed there were inconsistencies in how penalties were applied, and suggested that F1 needed professional stewards, instead of the current system whereby F1 rotates between different stewards each race weekend.
An FIA document said Steiner would be required to report to the stewards at 14:30 local time on Saturday afternoon, after alleged breaches of Articles 12.2.1.c, 12.2.1.f and 12.2.1.k of the FIA International Sporting Code.
