Raikkonen race start bump just a simple accident according to stewards

By on

The stewards have proclaimed the incident between Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastien Vettel at the start of the Hungarian GP a simple accident, and that no punishment of any kind is due for either driver. Although according to the Red Bull squad it was Raikkonen's wheel to wheel bump that caused Vettel's suspension failure which ultimately retired him from the race.

Furtermore, Mark Webber has been let off with a reprimand for nearly colliding into Kimi Raikkonen when the former was exiting from his pit stop. There was no contact between the two, so the stewards decided to simply warn the Australian and his team.
