A spokesman for F1's governing body, the FIA, has confirmed there will be no disciplinary action in the wake of Fernando Alonso and Ferrari's post-Valencia outbursts.

Alonso accused FIA stewards of manipulating the European Grand Prix and Ferrari branded the race a 'scandal' after stewards imposed a late drive-through penalty on Lewis Hamilton after the Briton overtook the safety car.

"It's a shame, not for us because this is racing, but for all the fans who came here to watch a manipulated race," an angry Alonso told Spanish television after the race.

"A scandal , that's the opinion of so many fans and employees who are all in agreement: there is no other way to describe what happened during the European Grand Prix," added the Ferrari statement.

Although a media report on Monday said "a number" of officials are "known to be angered" by the outbursts, an FIA spokesman is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying "we won't be taking action."
