Paris: Formula One's governing body says it will take another look at Sebastian Vettel's deliberate collision with Lewis Hamilton at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix after the German driver escaped with only a time penalty.
Vettel swerved his Ferrari into the side of Hamilton's Mercedes when they were behind the safety car approaching the midway point of Sunday's stop-start race. Vettel, who said he did it in response to a dangerous braking move by Hamilton right in front of him, was given a 10-second stop-and-go penalty.
The FIA says it "will further examine the causes of the incident in order to evaluate whether further action is necessary," at a meeting on Monday.
Any decision will be taken swiftly as the FIA added it would issue "a statement regarding the outcome of this process" before the Austrian Grand Prix on 9 July.
