Lando Norris has provisionally lost his win from the final race of the opening MSA Formula round at Brands Hatch last weekend, pending the outcome of an appeal from his Carlin team.
Norris was excluded from race three for infringing yellow flag rules by allegedly passing another car during a safety car period.
James Pull is now the race winner in the provisional amended classification published on Tuesday, with stewards to meet at the second round at Donington Park next weekend to consider Carlin’s appeal of the exclusion.
The incident likely refers to the first of two cautions in the race, thrown for an incident on lap one. Having started on pole position, Norris crossed the line in third place at the end of the first lap behind Pull and Matheus Leist.
The next time around, still under the safety car, Norris was clocked ahead of Leist in second place. The world karting champion went on to pass Pull – who is part of the same ADD Motorsports management stable – for the victory later in the race.
The exclusion changes the provisional championship standings, with Norris losing 25 points and dropping from first to fifth. Dan Ticktum inherits a five-point lead ahead of Pull and Collard tied for second and Leist in fourth.
