The Stewards have opted to take no further action on the incident between Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon towards the end of the Australian Grand Prix.
The third standing start of the day following a second red flag period saw carnage occur at the opening corners.
Multiple cars ran wide and were shuffled into difficult positions at Turn 1, with Gasly running briefly onto the grass after locking up.
After rejoining the circuit, Ocon was pulling up alongside him and the two made contact, pitching both into the wall and out of the race.
“The Stewards heard from the driver of Car 10 (Pierre Gasly), the driver of Car 31 (Esteban Ocon), a team representative and reviewed positioning/marshalling system data, video and in-car video evidence and determined that it was a first lap racing incident,” read a statement from the Stewards.
“Both cars recognised and accepted this as such. In the circumstances, we took no further action.”
It marked a disappointing end to the race for the Enstone-based squad, with Gasly looking to be on for strong points prior to the clash.
Galsy and Alpine will also be glad to avoid punishment in the form of penalty points, with the Frenchman dangerously close to receiving a race ban.
Throughout the 2022 campaign, Gasly racked up penalty points and currently sits on 10, just two away from being ruled out of a grand prix.
Gasly won’t have any penalty points stripped from his Super Licence until May 22.
While Alpine’s drivers avoided punishment, the stewards weren’t as lenient when dealing with Carlos Sainz, who has hit with a costly five-second time penalty as well as two penalty points.
