As he did so, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was approaching the first corner and took to the pitlane exit road to avoid the Red Bull. Verstappen was summoned to the stewards, who also reviewed evidence, but was cleared because approaching drivers were being warned a car had gone off by yellow flags. The stewards thus decided Verstappen rejoined “under yellow flags and in a manner that posed no danger to the other drivers”. Verstappen was second-fastest behind teammate Daniel Ricciardo in FP1.
