The stewards have issued their verdicts after Red Bull were summoned over the same alleged offence for Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez following the Monaco Grand Prix.

Both drivers found themselves under investigation for allegedly failing to stay to the right of the yellow line at pit exit.

Documentation from the FIA confirmed that protests had been launched by Ferrari over the matter.

But now the Race Stewards have decided to reject both protests with Perez confirmed as race winner whilst Verstappen keeps hold of his podium finish.

Verstappen did touch line; Perez did not

Following a hearing with both drivers and representatives from both Ferrari and Red Bull, it was decided that neither Perez nor Verstappen would be punished.

It was agreed that, while Verstappen had touched the yellow line, he did not "cross" it and would have needed "a full wheel" over the line in order to be punished.

Meanwhile, Ferrari were forced to concede that Perez "did not have any part of his car" on the yellow line, resulting in the protest being dismissed.
