The Red Bull driver, who declared lead with his first lap of Q3, was the last male through the final corner after Valtteri Bottas had crashed in to the barriers.
With a single yellow flag on display screen on the exterior of the corner, Verstappen set a quicker sector time than he had on his supreme lead lap.
There were ideas that the mini-sector times– which are used by the FIA to evaluate in more information how a motorist has actually reacted– did show he slowed.
After Verstappen declared in the post-qualifying press conference that he had not slowed for Bottas’ crash and the stewards have more evaluated the matter, the FIA has actually now summoned him for examination.
Asked after certifying about the incident, Verstappen said: “I knew that Valtteri crashed.”
When pushed further on if he backed off, Verstappen said: “It didn’t actually look like it did it? No.”
He was also defiant about keeping his foot in for the incident.
