Stewards rule Leclerc-Grosjean pit collision was “minor” | 2019 German Grand Prix

The German Grand Prix stewards have explained the decision to fine Ferrari after Charles Leclerc was released from his pit box unsafely during the race.
After re-watching today’s incident the stewards ruled Ferrari did release Leclerc “into the path of the approaching car eight [Grosjean].”
As a result “the cars made minor contact.”
“Leclerc drove at an acute angle to avoid a tyre changer in the next pit and had no opportunity to drive in the merge area.”
Ferrari was fined €5,000 for the incident but Leclerc avoided a sporting penalty for the collision.
