Sebastian Vettel found himself in hot water with race stewards after the Malaysian Grand Prix for overtaking under yellow flags, but he walked away without any penalty.
Race stewards had a friendly chat with the Red Bull driver after he overtook Jarno Trulli under yellow flags during the final few laps of Sunday's race.
Vettel was cruising to his first race victory of the season when the yellow flags came out after Fernando Alonso's engine blew up. The German, though, still overtook Trulli at Turn 4 and this move landed him in a spot of bother.
However, the stewards decided not to dish out any punishment after studying video and telemetry data.
The FIA report stated: 'Having received a report from the Race Director (Charlie Whiting) that Car 5 Sebastian Vettel overtook Car 18 Jarno Trulli whilst yellow flags were displayed at the approach to Turn 4, the Stewards, having viewed video and telemetry evidence and heard evidence from the Driver and Team Representative, find that the Driver did breach Article 184.108.40.206 b) of Appendix H of the International Sporting Code.
'However, the Stewards, having noted that the Driver made a very large reduction in speed through the yellow flag area and that he understood that Car 18 was slowing with an obvious problem, DECIDE in accordance with Article 16.2 a) of the Formula One Sporting Regulations to impose no penalty.'
