No punishment for Schumi-Alonso incident

Michael Schumacher will not be punished for the incident with Fernando Alonso during the second qualifying session for the US Grand Prix.

Schumacher appeared to impede Alonso during Q2. Angry radio messages from Alonso were heard after the incident. However officials decreed that no action was required as neither driver was on a flying lap when the incident occurred.

A stewards’ statement reads, “Both drivers advised that they were on their first (preparation) lap of a multi-lap stint and were able to continue their respective laps.”
