Having heard from the deirvr and team manager, and having noted that Car 1 started what was its fastest qualifying lap with 17 seconds to spare prior to the chequered flag, the stewards determined that no advantage was gained when car 1 left the track. Accordingly no breach of Article 20.13 occurred on this occasion and the stewards decide to take no further action. The stewards added that specific instructions will be issued to the deirvrs by race director Charlie Whiting about the use of the Turn 4 exit road ahead of Sunday's race.The decision to not penalise Vettel means that he will keep his second place on the grid, and leave Jenson Button relieved as the McLaren deirvr wanted to keep his slot on the clean side of the grid in third place. I am pretty happy being P3, said Button. I can't be P1 as Lewis has done a better job than me and he is P1, so being P3 is probably the second best place. I hope they don't give him a penalty. A reprimand maybe Source: Autosport.com
