Sergio Perez will face no further action from Formula 1 stewards after an incident involving Charles Leclerc during Emilia Romagna Grand Prix practice.

During FP2 at Imola, the two drivers came across each other at Turn 3, with Perez being summoned for allegedly 'unnecessarily impeding' Leclerc.

Both drivers attended the stewards for a hearing, but both as well as their team representatives agreed that as it was free practice, the incident did not deserve a penalty, with the stewards accordingly taking no further action. 

Elsewhere, Yuki Tsunoda was issued with a reprimand for performing a practice start outside of the designated area and not following the race director's instructions. 

It is his first of the season, on a day he showed strong pace in the RB machine.
