It's a busy Saturday afternoon for the stewards in Barcelona. The free practice session ended bizarrely, as Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll collied at slow speed. Then shortly after, Charles Leclerc made what looked like intentional contact with Lando Norris after he felt he was impeded by the Brit.

It all started with Lance Stroll and Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton accidentally blocked Stroll, pulled over and apologised to Stroll. However, the Canadian did not think that was enough and appeared to have driven his Aston Martin into the Mercedes' sidepod. It was a very childish moment from Stroll. Hamilton's car luckily wasn't damaged. At 14:00, they reported to the stewards.

Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc also had to report. Norris was in Leclerc's way. Leclerc passed Norris and then cut him off resulting in damage to the front of the McLaren. A grid penalty for the Monegasque is not inconceivable. The two are due to report at 14:15.
