‘No driver to blame’ over Magnussen/Leclerc clash

The stewards have cleared Kevin Magnussen and Charles Leclerc for the clash between the pair which brought out the Safety Car in the Japanese Grand Prix.

Leclerc ran into the back of Magnussen’s car after the Haas driver moved in front of the Sauber on the approach to turn one. A furious Leclerc branded Magnussen “stupid”.

However the stewards took no action, ruling “no driver was wholly or predominantly to blame for the incident.”
