Now Max Verstappen is in the dock! Red Bull star joins Lewis Hamilton in being investigated by stewards over a potential rule breach after he was seen inspecting his Mercedes rival’s car following qualifying in Brazil

Lewis Hamilton’s hopes of winning a record eighth Formula One championship could be handed a lifeline after Max Verstappen was summoned by the stewards over a potential rule breach in parc ferme. The hearing will take place at 9:30am local time on Saturday (12:30pm GMT), five hours before the start of the 24-lap sprint race. Hamilton, who trails Verstappen by 19 points in the standings with four races left and 107 points up for grabs, faces a meeting with the stewards of his own. Should the steward determine Hamilton’s Mercedes breached technical regulations, the seven-time world champion could be disqualified from qualifying and would have to start the sprint race from last place. It’s not easy to follow here and Max is starting on pole now,’ he said after qualifying.
