Nico Rosberg will start the Monaco Grand Prix from pole position as the stewards chose to take no action over the incident at Mirabeau.
Rosberg’s second pole position in Monaco had been under threat after the stewards announced they were investigating why he stopped at Mirabeau on his final lap.
The Mercedes driver appeared to lose control of his car at the corner and came to a stop in the run-off area. As that brought the yellow flags out his team mate Lewis Hamilton was unable to improve his time.
But after examining video and telemetry evidence the stewards ruled “no offence was committed by the driver of car number six [Rosberg] as they “could find no evidence of any offence related to the turn five incident”.
The two Mercedes drivers will therefore start tomorrow’s race from the front row of the grid.
