Formula 1: Ferrari consider Sebastian Vettel protest

Ferrari want to establish whether there is enough evidence to lodge a protest that, if successful, could overturn the result of the world championship.
Ferrari are "evaluating footage" that appears to show Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel making an illegal overtaking move in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix.
Fernando Alonso lost the title by three points to Vettel after finishing second for Ferrari and the German seventh.
Governing body the FIA refused to confirm whether it was investigating.
Red Bull could not be reached.
The footage, from Vettel's on-board camera, appears to show the German passing Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne in a yellow 'caution' zone.
If that is the case, and any protest was upheld, it could mean Vettel would have 20 seconds added to his total race time. That would demote him to eighth place and make Alonso world champion by one point.

Wow.

So much to focus on while driving, what with the flashing lights on the dashboard, flashing lights on the track itself, and Marshall's waving flags, god knows the brain would get confused with all that going on. Oh, and also while trying to race an F1 car.

Looks like any decision should be made by this Friday though so not long to wait.
 
They all have the same problems/ confusion etc.

They are usually very quick to investigate things, but strangely not last time.

There were several occasions when I thought Vettel should've been investigated.

He could well have been given 2 drive throughs. He didn't give a cars width, for example.

It stinks, and sours the whole thing, I'm afraid.
 
The FIA have confirmed that Vettel's pass on Vergne was legal. They'd passed a green flag after the yellow lights.
