Lewis Hamilton has been cleared over a yellow flag rule breach in final Formula 1 practice in Jeddah after the stewards found the system was activated accidentally.
Hamilton was summoned for two separate incidents during FP3 for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, leading to a hearing with the stewards at 7pm local time in Jeddah.
The initial summons concerned an alleged failure to slow for double-waved yellow flags 20 minutes into the session, with a subsequent bulletin being issued for impeding Nikita Mazepin.
Hamilton spent around 15 minutes with the stewards, who confirmed shortly before the start of qualifying that the Mercedes driver had been cleared of the yellow flag breach. (Motorsport)
