Stewards take no action on Raikkonen crash

The Monaco Grand Prix stewards have decided that no action was needed following the crash between Kimi Raikkonen and Adrian Sutil on Sunday

Raikkonen crashed into the back of Sutil with just a few minutes of the race left, robbing the Force India driver of what looked set to be his best finish in Formula One.

Although the accident was clearly caused by Raikkonen, the stewards deemed no action was necessary.

"The Stewards after hearing the explanation of both the Competitors representatives and the drivers decided that the incident requires no further action," they said in a statement.

An emotional Sutil said after the race that he was sure Raikkonen had not done it on purpose.

"It was a great race with an incredibly sad ending," he said. "We could have had fourth place. It's incredible bad luck that Kimi crashed into me. He obviously didn't do it on purpose."

Raikkonen himself said he had just lost control of his car and there was nothing he could do to avoid hitting the Force India car.
