After the qualifying debacle in Bahrain – does Vettel also face a penalty?

Sebastian Vettel only finished 18th in qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix, but things could get even worse for the Aston Martin driver. The reason: a rule violation.

Sebastian Vettel could hit it even harder after the completely disappointing 18th place in the qualification for the season opener in Formula 1. The 33-year-old native of Heppenheim has to go to the race stewards four and a half hours before the start of the Bahrain Grand Prix (from 5 p.m. in the live ticker at t-online) on this Sunday. The reason for this is a possible offense in the qualification on Saturday on the course in the desert of Sakhir.

The accusation against the four-time world champion: Allegedly Vettel disregarded double waved yellow flags when Nikita Masepin stood on the track at the end of the first period of qualification after a spin with his Haas in turn 1. If Vettel can be proven a violation, he threatens the transfer of five places, so he would have to start the first race of the season last this Sunday.
