HOCKENHEIM, Germany -- Lewis Hamilton is under investigation by the stewards for an alleged unsafe release in the pit lane during final practice. Jarred Vanderbilt Jersey .Hamilton exited his garage directly in front of Romain Grosjean, causing the Haas driver to take avoiding action. The rules state that it is the responsibility of the competitor to release his car from his garage or pit stop position only when it is safe to do so before adding that the stewards may give a competitor a grid penalty for an unsafe release if they see fit.A reprimand, which is seen as a lesser penalty than a grid drop, would see Hamilton drop 10 places on the grid as it would be his third of the season. Hamiltons other two reprimands this season came in Bahrain for reversing in the pit lane at the end of the race and in Russia for rejoining the track the wrong side of a bollard during a practice session. At last years Belgian Grand Prix, Daniil Kvyat was given a reprimand for not paying attention as he was released in the pit lane during a Friday practice session.When Mercedes technical boss Paddy Lowe was asked by Sky Sports if there had been a problem with Hamiltons car as he left the pits, he said: You can see its a very, very tight garage here and he was right butted up against all the Ferrari equipment so its quite a tight line, so I guess thats the root of the problem.Hamilton will report to the stewards at 12:30 along with Mercedes team manager Ron Meadows to explain the incident.

Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. SOELDEN, Austria -- For once, Ted Ligety could live with finishing fifth in an event he had won four times in the previous five years.At least hes back racing again.The Olympic and world giant slalom champion returned to the Alpine skiing World Cup on Sunday, nine months after tearing the ACL in his right knee in a training accident.In 14th place and 1.49 seconds off the lead after the opening run, Ligety vastly improved in the second and climbed nine spots in the traditional first race of the season on a mountain glacier in the Austrian Alps.I am not here to get 10th place. Even though that wouldnt be a horrible result for the first time back, I like to be challenging for a podium, Ligety told The Associated Press between runs.He came 1.65 behind the dominant winner, Alexis Pinturault of France, but the result made him smile.Im definitely happy with fifth place to start it off with, Ligety said. In the second run I charged a little harder. I skied well, for sure. I definitely felt a little bit more confident than in the first run where I was on the conservative side.The knee injury occurred in Germany in January. By that time, my season was already messed up from smaller injuries, anyway as he dealt with back and hip ailments.After his season got off to a strong start by winning in Soelden and coming runner-up in a super-G in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in early December, the physical troubles took their toll and he failed to finish most races.The training crash then caused the first season-ending injury in his 13-year-old career.During the first couple of weeks, watching races on the couch was less than fun, and a couple of weeks later watching races on the spinning bike was even less fun, Ligety said. But it makes you hungry to race again, too.The American called himself lucky that theere was no more damage because an ACL is a pretty straight forward thing which many skiers have to deal with in their careers.

Youre more likely to win an Olympic gold medal in skiing if you have had an ACL so I am joining a better statistical group now, he joked.Physically fit again but with less training on snow than usual, Ligety returned to the mountain in Austria where he won a record five times in total, most recently a year ago for the last of his 25 World Cup victories.My knee doesnt bother me at all skiing, its just about finding that next high speed gear. I am not there yet but I am happy to race.Usually an all-round competitor, Ligety will first try to regain his old strength in GS before getting other disciplines back onto his schedule.He planned to do some super-G races but could well stay away from what used to be his strongest discipline when he entered the World Cup in 2003 -- the slalom. This summer, he trained in that discipline only for one day.The last couple of years, slalom has not been such a good return on investment for me so Im not really putting too much into that, he said. Ill ski some slaloms if it works out schedule-wise and training-wise.Though his chances to win an overall World Cup title one day are decreasing, the 32-year-old double Olympic champion has enough ambitions left.Like every year, the giant slalom globe is the big goal, said Ligety, who won the prize for the best skier in the discipline five times. Obviously this year I dont have the same awesome prep period and miles as I would normally. The world champs (in Switzerland in February) is coming up also and it would be nice to defend the GS title again.
