Verstappen sped past Lewis Hamilton on the last lap after a late appearance of the safety car, following a crash, erased the British driver’s substantial lead. His Mercedes team was furious.

The FIA said that, following a proposal by outgoing president Jean Todt, “a detailed analysis and clarification exercise for the future with all relevant parties will now take place”.

It added that “this matter will be discussed… with all the teams and drivers to draw any lessons from this situation and clarity to be provided to the participants, media, and fans about the current regulations to preserve the competitive nature of our sport”.

It said that the controversy was “tarnishing the image of the Championship and the due celebration of the first Drivers’ World Championship title won by Max Verstappen”.
