The stewards have issued reprimands to Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo for their collision in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
The Red Bull drivers retired from the race following the collision but were cleared of blame by their team.
“Both drivers contributed to the collision. The driver of car 33 made two moves, both of which were relatively minor.
“The driver of car three admitted he left his move to overtake on the left, too late. It was obvious to the stewards that although the incident had its origins in the moves by car 33, the driver of car three also contributed to the incident.
“Both drivers expressed regret about their respective contributions to the incident, during the stewards’ hearing.”
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said both drivers would apologise to the team for the collision.
“As a policy we want to let our guys race,” he said. “We’ve let them race hard against each other. And unfortunately today has resulted in the worst possible scenario where you’ve had both drivers make contact and retire from the grand prix.
“There’s no blame apportioned more in one position than the other. They’re both equally responsible. What’s obviously annoying is we’ve given away an awfully large amount of points today so both the drivers will be apologising to all the members of staff who work so hard to put these cars together.”
