German GP stewards have deemed that no action will be taken against Red Bull despite concerns about an issue with the engine mapping on the RB8.

News broke this morning at Hockenheim that a problem had been referred to stewards by the FIA, with questions being asked about the legality of the map used by Sebastien Vettel and Mark Webber in qualifying.

While stewards revealed that they didn't accept all of the arguments made by Red Bull, they also deemed that the technical regulations hadn't been breached.

It means Vettel will line up second on the grid, with Webber in eighth after his gearbox penalty.

"The stewards received a report from the FIA technical delegate, along with specific ECU data from Red Bull Racing Cars 1 and 2," a statement from the stewards read. "The stewards met with the team representatives and the representative of the engine supplier Renault.

"While the stewards do not accept all the arguments of the team, they however conclude that as the regulation is written, the map presented does not breach the text of Art 5.5.3 of the Formula One Technical Regulations and therefore decided to take no action."
