No action over Alonso/Gutierrez crash

The Australian Grand Prix stewards have cleared Esteban Gutierrez and Fernando Alonso of any wrongdoing in their huge accident during the race.

The McLaren driver was lucky to escape unscathed after he crashed into the back of the Haas car under braking as they fought for 19th position.

Alonso's car crashed into the wall and then rolled three times before coming to a stop upside down, the McLaren completely destroyed. 

The Spaniard said he was lucky to be alive after the impact.

The incident was under investigation, but the stewards deemed it was just a racing incident and that no one was predominately to blame.
