No action will be taken against Rubens Barrichello or Kimi Raikkonen over their roles in the first-corner accident at Hockenheim three weeks ago.

The decision was confirmed by German Grand Prix stewards at the Hungaroring on Friday after they reconvened to consider fresh evidence arising from this week's Williams appeal hearing.

Ralf Schumacher was originally found responsible in the accident. The FIA International Court of Appeal agreed, but referred the case back to the stewards to examine whether he was solely to blame.
