Stewards make decision over Gasly-Pérez collision on final lap

The race stewards at the Japanese Grand Prix have opted not to take any further action regarding the last-lap incident between Pierre Gasly and Sergio Pérez, as the latter ended the race in the barrier after colliding with the Toro Rosso driver.

Pérez actually kept his P9-finish at Suzuka despite crashing into the barrier as it technically happened after the race had already finished. The Mexican went round the outside of Gasly to make a move for P8, but the Frenchman tagged the Racing Point as the pair went through turn 2.

The stewards have decided not to take any further action, however, as neither driver was deemed wholly at fault for the collision, besides from the fact it technically happened after the race had already finished.
