Rosberg exonerated over flag incident


Stewards in Hungary take no further action over Rosberg Q3 flag incident.

Nico Rosberg has retained pole position for tomorrow's Hungarian Grand Prix after stewards ruled there was no case to answer following their investigation into the yellow flag incident in the closing moments of today's qualifying session.

Summoned for an alleged breach of Appendix H, Article b) of the FIA International Sporting Code, in that he failed to slow for yellow flags, the stewards, having heard from the driver and team representatives and examined telemetry evidence, ruled that the telemetry demonstrated that the driver reduced speed significantly into turn 8.

Consequently, the German starts from pole tomorrow.

Now, perhaps they can investigate why it took more than three hours to decide there was something to investigate.
