Mark Webber has been reprimanded for having missed a weight check during qualifying for the United States Grand Prix.
The Australian Red Bull driver was under investigation after officials said he had missed a call to be weighed near the end of Q1.
Webber went on to qualify in third position.
The stewards gave the Australian a reprimand for the incident, meaning he will was able to keep his grid slot for Sunday's race.
"The driver failed to proceed directly to the FIA garage for weighing when signalled to do so," said the stewards. "However upon realising the error, the team brought the car back to the FIA garage immediately."
