Kevin Magnussen had to report to the stewards because he was said to not have obeyed the rules at the restart of the Grand Prix of Tuscany. The Dane caused a major crash which resulted in red flags.

Antonio Giovinazzi, Carlos Sainz Jr., Nicholas Latifi and Magnussen competed against each other. Magnussen has been sent to the stewards on the basis of Article 39.13 of the sports regulations, The Race reports on Sunday afternoon. 

Due to the alleged infringement by Magnussen, Giovinazzi, Sainz and Latifi will also have to report to the race management later. The regulations state that "from the point at which the lights on the car are turned out drivers must proceed at a pace which involves no erratic acceleration or braking nor any other manoeuvre which is likely to endanger other drivers or impede the restart." 

Sainz was shocked

Sainz called it "pretty scary". "Probably everyone in front of me just thought that we were racing. Suddenly it looks like we were not racing anymore and everyone started braking again and by the time I saw everything it was too late and it was a big crash", said the McLaren driver.
