Ferrari may appeal Vettel title
Ferrari are considering an appeal against an overtaking manoeuvre by Sebastian Vettel chaotic Brazilian Grand Prix which could see the German stripped of his title, it was reported on Wednesday.
The Daily Mail claimed that YouTube footage appeared to show Vettel, the youngest triple world champion in Formula One history, overtaking Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne under yellow flags in the early laps of the rain-affected race at Interlagos.
Overtaking under caution is outlawed and is usually punished with a drivethrough penalty. However, in cases where the infringement is not spotted, the newspaper claimed, the sanction is a 20second penalty handed out retrospectively.
