Webber escapes with reprimand over missed weight check

Red Bull driver Mark Webber has escaped with a reprimand after he missed a weight check during US Grand Prix qualifying.

The Australian driver was under investigation by race stewards after he missed a weight call towards the end of the first qualifying session.

Race stewards have given Webber a reprimand but no further action will be taken. This means that the Australian driver will start the race in third place.

A statement from the stewards reads, “The driver failed to proceed directly to the FIA garage for weighing when signalled to do so. However upon realising the error, the team brought the car back to the FIA garage immediately.”
