Renault used up the first of its four allowed curfew exceptions on Thursday night at Monza so it could add a raft of latest updates to its two cars in Italy.
Teams are allowed four curfew exceptions during the year, in case they are forced to work late for unexpected repairs.
The updates for Monza only arrived at the track on Thursday, so the team elected to work late into the night to get them ready for Friday practice, rather than getting up early on Friday.
A statement from the FIA read: "Last night team personnel of the Lotus Renault GP team, who are associated with the operation of the car, were within the confines of the circuit during the six hour period which commenced at 01:00 on 09 September, nine hours before the scheduled start time of P1.
"This was the first of the four individual exceptions permitted for the Lotus Renault GP team during the 2011 Formula 1 Championship and therefore no action should be taken."
The team's new driver Bruno Senna, on his second race weekend of the year, notched up a fine of 8,800 Euros in the second practice session for twice breaking the pitlane speed limit.
