No further action will be taken against Lance Stroll for impeding Valtteri Bottas in Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix Qualifying, the stewards have decided.
Stroll was hauled in front of the stewards over the incident which happened towards the end of Q1, with multiple cars backing up around Turn 13.
During this sequence, Stroll impeded Bottas, forcing the Alfa Romeo to abort his lap - although both drivers were able to make it through to Q2.
When presented with the evidence, including testimony from Bottas, the stewards found that the Finn felt he was already impeded earlier in the lap, and that Stroll was "not wholly to blame" for the blocking on the racing line.
A sequence of events involving Pierre Gasly, George Russell and Lando Norris all converging meant Stroll was forced to stay on the racing line and thus impede Bottas.
However, Article 37.5 requires a driver to be "unnecessarily" impeded, with the stewards ruling that given the on-track situation and the fact that Bottas did not feel a penalty was just, no further action was appropriate.
Stroll thus keeps his 15th on the grid with Bottas due to start in seventh.
