Ferrari asks for review of Vettel's Canadian GP penalty

Ferrari asks for review of Vettel's Canadian GP penalty

Vettel has received plenty of support from other drivers on the F1 grid after his penalty, but says the main importance is having a united Grand Prix Drivers' Association (GPDA) that pushes for freedom to race hard.

"I take an example like I crossed the pit exit line in Monaco with part of my wheel, got a five second penalty and one point on my licence and Verstappen got an unsafe release in the pit lane and had a touch with Bottas and it was a five second and one point penalty because that's what is written".

"Last year I hit that sweet spot at some point during the season, and started being really, really consistent", Hamilton told Autosport.

"21 races, every single point counts - even seven points, or three points, it adds up, so I take a lot of pride in that".

'Last year qualifying at the end of the year was very strong'.

"But it's all to do with lifestyle, health, all those kinds of things, and they have a real impact". I'm hoping that the rest of the year continues. I wasn't losing my temper, I wasn't happy but I think I have reason not to be happy. "That's all down to lifestyle, and life choices".

Asked if he felt frustrated at his lack of success after a run of 15 races without a victory, he said: "I am not frustrated".

"I've managed to get myself in a really good place, and really delivering minimum faults, mistakes on race weekend and races".

"I had a small hiccup on Friday (in Canada) but was able to pull it back on Saturday and then throughout the weekend, so that's a real, real focus".

"We expect another tough fight in France. the circuit features some similarities to Montreal and the long straights will present a challenge for us", said the Austrian.

"We have the right to request a review", a spokeswoman said.

Montreal was the second race this season that Ferrari should have won, with Charles Leclerc on pole in Bahrain but denied victory by a late engine problem, but they will not be favorites in France.

"If you can be an all-round driver, you work well outside of the auto and particularly to pull these things out that others are perhaps not always able to pull together, it makes your value go up".
