Lewis Hamilton had to go to the stewards after Qualifying because he didn’t lift when he passed Valtteri Bottas who went offtrack. The Mercedes driver claimed he wasn’t able to see the yellow flag because of the dust.
We can now show you the onboard footage from Lewis’ car.

FIA: “Video footage confirmed that there have been yellow flags and green light panels at the same time and therefore conflicting signals were shown to the driver”
It reminds many people of a similar moment Max Verstappen had during qualifying in Mexico last year when Valtteri Bottas went offtrack as well and the Red Bull driver didn’t lift when he passed him. The Dutchman got a three-place grid penalty for that moment and we show you the footage below.
