Ferrari's request for review of Vettel penalty rejected

Ferrari's request for review of Vettel penalty rejected

The Indian, who raced in Formula One for now-defunct tail-end teams Hispania and Team Lotus in 2010 and 2011 without scoring a point, was apparently unaware that his opinion formed part of the evidence. Obviously, now, it's disappointing that it doesn't go any further, but that's it.

The German star added: "Let us do what we want". It's as easy as that.

Article 27.3 of the Sporting Regulations states: "Drivers will be judged to have left the track if no part of the vehicle remains in contact with it and, for the avoidance of doubt, any white lines defining the track edges are considered to be part of the track but the kerbs are not".

"Anyways, it is what it is and as I said there are too many paragraphs but what do you change?"

"Naturally for me with my team I would be having them focus mostly on trying to improve the auto".

Valtteri Bottas outpaced his team-mate Lewis Hamilton to top the times in second free practice at the French Grand Prix on Friday, as Ferrari's bid to be granted a review of Sebastian Vettel's penalty in Montreal was rejected.

After deciding not to proceed with an appeal, Ferrari lodged a request for an official review and on Thursday an announcement by the Canadian stewards called Ferrari representatives to the hearing.

They will put forward their case for the controversial punishment to be re-opened, citing the emergence of new evidence.

Kevin Feige Confirms Discussions with Keanu Reeves for Possible Marvel Movie
Spider-Man has been a great addition to the MCU, but he carries a lot of studio baggage with him. Speaking to ComicBook .com, Feige was asked about Keanu Reeves potentially joining the MCU .


"I'm pretty happy today with my own performance", he said, after out-qualifying Vettel for the first time since his pole in Bahrain.

"The problem is we [the sport] are hurt with these things", Vettel told Sky Sports.

"Did he cross the white line?"

Asked if he was poised to retire, he said: "Retire!" At least I know I'm not in trouble again.

"It was up and down some laps it felt good and others didn't".

Ferrari team chief Mattia Binotto said the decision marked a day of disappointment for Formula One.

"But then we came here and I think when I arrived in the morning I heard it was Karun Chandhok's video that was the new evidence".

"We are disappointed - certainly for Ferrari, but we are also disappointed for our fans and for our sport".
