After Kevin Magnussen was penalised for the manner in which he rejoined the track after an off, Steiner had referred to a "stupid, idiot steward".

According to an FIA statement, the outburst may have been a breach of the International Sporting Code.

The Swiss newspaper Blick says Steiner or Haas could be punished with a $250 000 fine, a paddock suspension for Steiner, or even a loss of points.
