Nico Rosberg will keep pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix following an investigation into his conduct in qualifying.
Race stewards decided after a studying data from the car that the German slowed sufficiently for waved yellow flags for a car stationary on track.
Rosberg’s Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton lost pole because he slowed after McLaren’s Fernando Alonso spun.
Rosberg was running behind Hamilton and slowed only fractionally.
Stewards did not announce they were investigating the incident until 19:16 local time – more than three hours after qualifying finished.
But they subsequently decided that he had “reduced speed sufficiently into Turn Eight”.
