Ocon, who held off Vettel to claim a shock maiden F1 victory at the Hungaroring, has been summoned by the stewards over his post-race procedure, having failed to return his car to parc ferme.

The Frenchman instead parked his Alpine at the end of the pit lane before joining his team to celebrate a famous win.

Vettel is one of four drivers who are under investigation relating to violations of the pre-race ceremony procedure, including the We Race As One recognition and national anthem, ahead of Sunday’s Hungarian GP.

The regulations state that drivers must “remove their t-shirts” before the national anthem.

Vettel will be joined in the stewards meeting along with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas and his Aston Martin teammate Lance Stroll. All four drivers were given a reprimand. 

The four-time world champion was seen wearing a rainbow-coloured t-shirt on the grid featuring the words “Same Love” as part of his ongoing support for the LGBTQ+ community across the weekend in Hungary.

“I heard it’s because I left the shirt on for the national anthem,” Vettel told Sky after the race.

“They can disqualify me. They can do what they want. I’d do it again.”

New championship leader Lewis Hamilton supported Vettel’s stand, saying: "I think it’s wonderful that Seb has taken a stance this weekend to speak out for those in the LGBTQ+ community here. 

“I spoke about it at the beginning of the weekend and I think it was important for him to do so. I don’t think…he probably won’t get in too much trouble but we have to make a stand, we have been pushing diversity and inclusivity and that community 100% is included in that. ”
