Montoya escapes punishment

NEWS STORY
10/06/2006

Following an investigation into an incident involving Juan Pablo Montoya and David Coulthard, race stewards have decided not to take any action against the Colombian.

Having missed the cut in phase two of today's qualifying session, Coulthard was clearly incensed, shaking his fist at McLaren crew members as he drove down the pitlane to the Red Bull garage.

"I'm disappointed with what happened with Montoya," said the Scot. "He obviously made a mistake on his flying lap and then, in trying to make me pay for his pain, he drove slowly round the end of the lap before I could start mine.

"We'll have a Stewards enquiry to see what happens there, but to me it was deliberate action, which impeded another driver."

The veteran of over 200 Grands Prix had previously described that Colombian's actions as "disgusting".

However, having spoken to both drivers and studied video evidence, the stewards issued the following statement:

"The Stewards after hearing the explanation of both drivers, heard from the respective competitors' team managers, considered the data evidence and timesheets produced decided that the matter requires no further action."
