The FIA has announced that Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Mark Webber and Jaime Alguersuari are all under investigation after having allegedly failed to slow for the yellow flags during today's F1 2011 Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya.

The possible indiscretions occurred near the end of the 66-lap race, when Team Lotus man Heikki Kovalainen crashed out on lap 51 at Turn 4.

Hamilton eventually finished second, just behind race winner, Sebastian Vettel, with Button third, Webber fourth and Alguersuari 16th.

With such big gaps though, it is unlikely the result will be affected, even if the drivers' are handed a 10 or 20-second time penalty.
