Autosport

Michael Schumacher escaped a sanction for ignoring blue flags during the Indian Grand Prix, after being summoned to see the stewards.

Schumacher was investigated for having impeded Romain Grosjean during the race at the Buddh International Circuit.

But after the German and his Lotus rival spoke to the stewards after the race, it was decided that Schumacher had not held up his rival deliberately.

A statement issued by the FIA said: "The Stewards considered that the driver car 10 [Grosjean] did not close the gap sufficiently to require car 7 [Schumacher] to move out of the way in accordance with Appendix H Article 2.4.5 (d) of the International Sporting Code."
