Final verdict from the stewards after Rosberg investigation

FIA explained regulation about yellow flags

Single waved: Reduce your speed, do not overtake, and be prepared to change direction. There is a hazard beside or partly on the track

Double waved: Reduce your speed significantly, do not overtake, and be prepared to change direction or stop. There is a hazard wholly or partly blocking the track and/or marshals working on or beside the track.

Rosberg defended his actions earlier in the evening

‘I did what you have to do and that is lift,’ Nico said. ‘I did lift and as a result slow down. I am driving safely out there.’

Mercedes team boss, Toto Wolff, also insisted Rosberg had done nothing wrong.

‘When he entered the yellow zone he lifted quite considerably and lost quite some time and you can see this on the data very clearly,’ he said.

‘These drivers are the best drivers in the world. They need to be in control and they need to be able to judge what speed is appropriate for the circumstances and I think we can trust them.
