Kevin Magnussen has retained his fourth-place starting position for the Miami Grand Prix following his close call with Lewis Hamilton during qualifying on Saturday.
The pair came close to making contact in the final sector, with Hamilton forced to take action to avoid the Haas driver.
The stewards summoned both drivers to review the incident but opted to take no further action.
In a statement, they explained: “Car 44 [Hamilton] was on an in-lap and could see Car 20 [Magnussen] at the end of the straight.
“The unexpectedly high-speed differential between the two cars resulted in Car 44 having to take evasive action to avoid a collision.
“Given that neither car was on a fast lap and the fact that Car 20 had another slow car ahead of it, we did not consider either driver to be driving dangerously.
“Given that they were not on fast laps, there was no question of impeding either. So in the circumstances, we decided to take no further action.”
Magnussen benefitted from a red flag that brought the session to a premature end, with all drivers failing to log a final attempt.
“It feels good,” he said. “You know, it’s an important race for us. Home race for the team, all our big sponsors are here this weekend.
“And this is a race we hope goes, well, you know, it’s one of those. I got a bit lucky. But I don’t feel bad about it.”
Hamilton endured a more challenging session, dropping out in Q2. He is set to start the grand prix on Sunday from 13th.
