UPDATE | Ocon allowed to visit the stewards after victory in Hungary

Esteban Ocon has to answer to the stewards after the Hungarian Grand Prix, which he won. He has to explain why he did not drive into the pit lane after the lap of honour. A heavy penalty however does not seem to be in the making.

Ocon forgot to enter the pitlane, so his team had to push the Alpine car back. This is a violation of the rules and the French driver needs to explain himself.

Stewards are busy

The winner of the day is not the only one who has to explain himself. Sebastian Vettel, Carlos Sainz, Lance Stroll and Valtteri Bottas are also called to the stewards. These four drivers did not adhere to the Race Director's instruction prior to the race. Presumably this was due to making a statement during the pre-race ceremony.

Update | Ocon will not be sentenced in Hungary

Esteban Ocon 's explanation has proved sufficient to avoid punishment at the Hungaroring. The Alpine car was stopped in the wrong place by Ocon, but fortunately that does not get him more than a reprimand. It will make little difference to the Frenchman given his first victory in Formula 1
