Haas scored its first points of the season in the Hungarian Grand Prix but the result could be at risk after a summons to see the stewards over an alleged violation of pre-race regulations.

"The reason for the summons is detailed: "[An] Alleged breach of Article 27.1 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations, driver aids during formation lap".

The stewards document requesting Haas explain its actions to the officials said the incident in question concerned "driver aids during formation lap".

Kevin Magnussen was on the full wet tire and Romain Grosjean the intermediate when the grid left on the formation lap ahead of the race, but both drivers came into the pits at the end of that lap and switched to slicks.

Speaking to Sky Sports F1 after the race, Magnussen said: "I'm so happy, the team took an unbelievable call before the beginning of the race".

"To call for slicks was an awesome call from the team and really strong for them to give me that trust to put me out on dry tyres in those conditions". I think everybody did a good job, nobody gave up, and we got some points.

"I started from the pitlane and after a few laps I was P3 or something and fully back in the race".

"I knew that wouldn't be our final placing, but it was wonderful to be up there in the race".

"I was thinking, trying to judge where I might be able to hang on". I was able to keep the McLaren [Carlos Sainz Jr] away. "It's proved that the team has done an fantastic job even though we've been struggling a little bit in qualifying".
