Lewis Hamilton has escaped penalty after FIA stewards probed his alleged erratic driving whilst leading the field behind the safety car at Fuji Speedway a week ago.

After hours of deliberation, stewards finally ruled that the 22-year-old championship leader, who earlier on Friday issued a veiled threat to quit Formula One over the controversy, was not to blame for the collision between Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel.

In the light of amateur video footage that was posted on YouTube, the Briton had been facing a ten-position grid penalty for Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix, or even a points deduction.

Toro Rosso's Vettel, however, has had his ten-position penalty reduced to a formal reprimand, the stewards said.


Following that meeting, the stewards stated: "Having heard the explanation of all concerned and viewed both the original film of the incident which was available to stewards at Fuji as well as the new film, what has become apparent is the view clearly expressed by all drivers and team managers alike that the conditions at Fuji were exceptionally bad and worse than those experienced when the race starts behind the safety car."

"Because of those views, the stewards accept that it may be inappropriate to impose the penalty normally applied for an offence such as this."

"In the circumstances the stewards will reduce the penalty imposed on Vettel to a reprimand."

"The involvement of Lewis Hamilton in this incident has also been considered in the light of evidence given by him, his team manager and in particular all other parties present and no penalty is imposed upon him."



This should lay to rest all the LH conspiracys!

Kimi also need hamilton does not get another 4 points at Brazil, and Alonso does not get another 8 points in Brazil.

Other hand, Hamilton only needs 7 points to secure the championship.

The season is ending in a very interesting way.

Yeah I hope the same.

It was good drive by Vet - 4th place.

Today was Hamilton's first retirement. It was his mistake to enter the pits so fast with no grip.

Current WC standing will make the next race very interesting.

01 Lewis Hamilton 107
02 Fernando Alonso 103
03 Kimi Räikkönen 100

First time three drives fighting for the champion on the last race since the 80's.
Don't forget Massa, Kubica, Heinfield and Vettel can be party poopers for Lewis, Fernando, and Kimi.

hey buddy -- remember a month ago when i said raikkonen could win the championship and u said the comment above. "snowballs chance in hell" -- haha -- him winning the championship could be a reality now...

Ideal situation,
Massa gets pole in home grand prix, Raikkonen gets second on grid and holds off Alonso and puts some time on him...should rain cause hamilton is not a very good rain driver as seen in china and japan when he almost passed the safety car and caused an accident. Massa out of the goodness of his heart lets Raikkonen "pass" him

.

This is one of the most brilliant response. I like the way u think. It could happen especially since Massa is fast on this circuit (his home circuit) and won last season.
