Both drivers made it into Q3 at the Circuit of the Americas on Saturday afternoon.
However, both drivers faced a nervous wait after qualifying after being investigated for “driving unnecessarily slowly on an in-lap during qualifying.”
The stewards ruled that no further action was needed.
“Car 77 (and Car 31) exceeded the specified maximum time between Safety Car Lines on its post-qualifying in lap,” the stewards decision read.
“The stewards closely examined the driver’s in lap and found that Car 77 (and Car 31) did not drive unnecessarily slowly or in a manner to adversely affect any other driver.”
