Stewards at the Austrian Grand Prix have opted against handing out any penalties after investigating several drivers following the F1 Sprint race.
Sergio Perez, Mick Schumacher, Daniel Ricciardo, George Russell, Lance Stroll, Sebastian Vettel and Esteban Ocon were all called up regarding radio messages during the second formation lap.
This was an alleged violaton of Article 33.1 of the Sporting Regulations, which states that "a driver must be able to drive the car alone and without assistance".
