Race stewards said that there was no proof that Hamilton had driven ‘unnecessarily slowly’.

In a statement issued on Saturday they said: “The sector time for Car 4 (Hamilton) was actually faster than a time set previously in that same sector by Car 8 Nico Rosberg, which is an indication that Car 4 was not being driven unnecessarily slowly between turns 21 and 25.”

“The smallest gap between Car 4 and Car 8 was 18 metres and 1.1 seconds.”
