The United States Grand Prix stewards have decided not to take any action against Sergio Perez or Charles Pic over their collision in final practice.
Pic's Marussia was punted into a spin at Turn 7 when Sauber driver Perez tried to pass down the inside.
Although Perez made his move from a long way back, Pic was on a slow lap at the time and running off the pace. The Marussia suffered minor floor damage in the clash.
A statement from the officials said: "Having heard from both drivers, the stewards are satisfied this was a racing incident."
Had Perez received any censure for the incident, it would have resulted in a grid penalty.
