Vettel will not be penalized

Sebastian Vettel will not be penalized for cutting Turn 5 during one of his qualifying in-laps in Korea on Saturday, with stewards closing the matter after an investigation.

Having looked at the relevant data, the panel stated that no overall advantage was gained by missing the corner, thus allowing Vettel to keep his place on the front row.

Meanwhile, Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber has been handed a fine of 1,400 euros (£1,226) for speeding in the pit lane during the final grid-deciding phase.
