Vettel, Leclerc cleared over Brazil GP collision

Vettel, Leclerc cleared over Brazil GP collision

Brazilian Grand Prix stewards opted to take no further action against Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel after their collision at Interlagos.

At a safety car restart prompted by Valtteri Bottas' retirement, Leclerc had the run on Vettel with fresher tyres, but the German fought back on the back straight, with the aid of DRS.

As the German looked to shut the door on his teammate, their wheels touched, causing a dramatic failure on Leclerc's front right and leaving Vettel with a puncture.

The stewards' report said "both drivers had the opportunity avoid or mitigate the incident and therefore that neither driver is predominantly at fault".

The decision will be of particular relief to Vettel, who has seven penalty points in his superlicence.

A punishment over this incident could have put him on the cusp of a race ban, with points not due to come off his licence until next June.
