Lack of fuel threatens Hamilton pole

"If they are not satisfied that the reasons were beyond the control of the driver or team, and feel that this has been done deliberately to gain a competitive advantage, appropriate action will be taken," the directive added.

A penalty would be a crushing blow for Hamilton, who clearly dominated qualifying right from the start despite unexpectedly stuff competition from Maldonado.

"It was a massive margin," said Whitmarsh of Hamilton's pole position time. "He undoubtedly deserves to be there."

Hamilton had an earlier encounter with the stewards in a row over an incident with Michael Schumacher in the morning Free Practice 3 session, during which Michael Schumacher's Mercedes appeared to return to the track right in front of the McLaren and impede a flying lap by Hamilton. However, the stewards declined to take any further action over the incident.
