The stewards have issued reprimands to Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo for their collision in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

The Red Bull drivers retired from the race following the collision but were cleared of blame by their team.

“The stewards heard from Daniel Ricciardo, the driver of car three, Max Verstappen, the driver of car 33 and the team representative,” the stewards noted.

“Both drivers contributed to the collision. The driver of car 33 made two moves, both of which were relatively minor.

“The driver of car three admitted he left his move to overtake on the left, too late. It was obvious to the stewards that although the incident had its origins in the moves by car 33, the driver of car three also contributed to the incident.

“Both drivers expressed regret about their respective contributions to the incident, during the stewards’ hearing.”
