F1: Ferrari to request clarification over Vettel move

Maranello, November 29 - Ferrari said Thursday that they were asking motor-racing's governing body FIA for clarification about the possibility that an overtaking move that helped Sebastian Vettel clinch the Formula One world title at Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix may have been illegal. Footage from Vettel's on-board camera has appeared on the Internet that seems to show the German Red Bull driver overtaking Jean-Eric Vergne, of sister team Toro Rosso, under yellow flags - which bans such moves. Vettel came sixth in Brazil to clinch his third world title, finishing the championship just three points ahead of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who came second on Sunday. "Ferrari has asked, by means of a letter, for a clarification from FIA regarding Sebastian Vettel's overtaking move on Jean-Eric Vergne, during lap 4 of the Brazilian Grand Prix," Ferrari said.
