Magnussen, Alonso, Vettel face investigation
15 March 2014 – McLaren rookie Kevin Magnussen, Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso and Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel are all under investigation after qualifying.
Magnussen and Vettel allegedly failed to slow down when yellow flags were waved for Kimi Räikkönen's crash in the dying moments of Q2.
Vettel failed to make it through to Q3 but Magnussen, making his Grand Prix debut, progressed. The McLaren driver's team-mate, Jenson Button, made clear over the radio that he lost significant time by backing off.
Meanwhile, Alonso is being investigated for potentially impeding Sauber's Esteban Gutiérrez at the first corner in the opening phase of qualifying.
