Stewards summon FIA personnel over dangerous pit incident

The personnel responsible for the pit lane blockage on the final lap of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix have been summoned to the Stewards.

Following the scary final lap pit lane crowding, the Stewards have summoned the personnel involved in the incident. With Esteban Ocon required to make a pit stop on the final lap of the race, the Alpine driver had to avoid a number of personnel and photographers as they were preparing for the post-race parc ferme. There were no injuries, but the FIA have reacted by launching an investigation into the incident. Now, the Stewards have decided to summon the "representatives of the FIA responsible for the parc ferme area" to provide their accounts of the incident. At the previous race, the Stewards bizarrely summoned the Australian Grand Prix organisers after a similarly-chaotic ending to the Melbourne race, where fans broke onto the circuit.
