Fernando Alonso will not be punished for stopping to collect a Spanish Grand Prix flag on the slowing-down lap after his home win.
The victorious Ferrari driver had been summoned to the stewards because by "receiving an object after the end-of-race signal" he risked breaching article 43.3 of Formula 1's sporting regulations.
But after investigating the incident, the officials decided the precedent was to withhold any kind of sanction.
A statement said: "no further action was taken to be consistent with a previous decision made under similar circumstances."
The Barcelona result was the third time Alonso has won in F1 on home ground.
Although he triumphed in last year's Valencia street race, which ran under the European GP title, he had not won the actual Spanish GP since his 2006 victory with Renault.
