RED FLAG Lewis Hamilton risks one-race BAN after picking up another penalty at F1 Russian Grand Prix in Sochi

LEWIS HAMILTON’s record-equalling title challenge could be put on hold as he risks a one-race ban. Hamilton saw himself handed a two five-second penalties in Russia after performing practice starts out of banned. Luckily for him, the FIA ruled the two penalties to form one incident, meaning he received two points, rather than the four which would have seen him banned. However, if he picks up any more penalty points he will receive a one-race ban. After the incident in Italy, Hamilton sought out race stewards for an explanation of the call to hand him a penalty. FIA Race Director, Michael Masi, says Hamilton was well within his rights to ask for a clarification.
