Stewards clear Alonso, Raikkonen after crash

The Austrian Grand Prix stewards have ruled out any action against Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso following their crash.

Alonso and Raikkonen were involved in a dramatic accident at the start of the race when the Finn lost control of his car and the Spaniard could not avoid it.

The McLaren ended up on top of the Ferrari, although both drivers escaped the accident unscathed.

Race control said the incident would be investigated after the race, but the stewards decided no further action was needed.

"I don't know what happened, I had wheelspin and then I was out," said Raikkonen.
