German Grand Prix: Hamilton summoned to the stewards to put result in doubt

Hamilton takes a trip across the on grass as he aborts his pit entryLewis Hamilton could lose his victory in the German Rand Prix after being summoned by stewards to explain a driving misdemeanour.The Mercedes driver aborted a pit stop to change tyres under a late-race safety car and cut across the grass to rejoin the track and take the lead.F1 rules prohibit cars entering the pit lane from crossing the line separating the pit entry and the track.
His win gave him a 17-point lead over title rival Sebastian Vettel.The race was thrown into disarray by late rain and Mercedes were not immune from the chaos, as evidenced by a breathless radio exchange when the safety car was deployed following Vettel's race-ending crash.Hamilton was told to pit, then told the team Kimi Raikkonen was pitting in front of him and was told to stay out, which became "in, in, in, in!" as he aborted and cut across the grass to rejoin the track.Should the race stewards deem an offence has been committed, a five-second penalty would drop Hamilton down to second place, while a 10-second punishment would bump him down to fourth.
