Danish rookie Kevin Magnussen of McLaren has been cleared of any blame for the crash that saw Brazilian Felipe Massa's Williams car flipped upside shortly after the start of last Sunday's German Grand Prix.

Massa had blamed Magnussen - and warned young drivers to be less reckless - after their collision at the first corner of the race at Hockenheim. Massa was unhurt.

Championship leader Nico Rosberg won the race comfortably when he came home 20.7 seconds ahead of Williams driver Valtteri Bottas of Finland while Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton finished third.
