Australian Grand Prix stewards have cleared three drivers who were summoned to answer calls over alleged transgressions.

Kevin Magnussen and Sebastian Vettel were summoned after allegedly failing to slow for yellow flags while Fernando Alonso was questioned for impeding.

Magnussen and Vettel were investigated for allegedly not slowing between turns three and four, when the yellow flags were flying for Kimi Raikkonen's stricken Ferrari.

Alonso was called after supposedly impeding Esteban Gutierrez at the first corner during Q1.

The stewards decided to take no further action on all three incidents.

Magnussen will start from fourth, ahead of fifth-placed Alonso while Vettel will begin his title defence from a lowly 12th on the grid.
