Stewards have deemed that no further action is necessary over the incident that left Esteban Ocon in the wall at the end of Spanish Grand Prix final practice.
Ocon hit the wall at the exit of Turn 3 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya after swerving to avoid Haas’ Kevin Magnussen.
Neither were on a hot lap, nor the racing line, when the incident occurred, with stewards summoning both drivers in order to discuss the matter.
Stewards heard from the pair, along with a representative from Renault and Haas, and also reviewed video evidence and telemetry data.
It was determined that Magnussen “lifted and slowed using ERS harvesting and there was no use of the brakes that contributed to the accident.”
Magnussen “pulled gently off line, having been advised of following traffic on fast laps” while at the same time “Ocon was also moving to the right to let traffic by, and was looking in his mirrors for the cars following.”
“When Ocon subsequently looked forward he was surprised to see Magnussen directly ahead of him and swerved to avoid a collision.
“Both drivers and the stewards agreed that it was an unfortunate accident and that neither driver was to blame.”
Ocon was 11th in the session while Magnussen classified 16th.
