Ferrari calls for review of Mexico penalty

NEWS STORY
10/11/2016

Ferrari has called on officials to review the decision to hand Sebastian Vettel a time penalty following the Mexican GP.

In a brief statement issued hours after the press conference at which race director Charlie Whiting explained why Vettel was punished, Ferrari called for a review.

It read:

"Scuderia Ferrari has submitted a request to the Stewards of the 2016 Mexican Grand Prix to review their decision to penalize Sebastian Vettel for breach of Article 27.5 of the 2016 F1 Sporting Regulations as a consequence of his driving behaviour in Turn 4 of lap 70.

This has been the first application of Article 27.5 of the 2016 F1 Sporting Regulations as interpreted on the basis of the Race Director's notes on "defensive manoeuvres" and effective from the 2016 US Grand Prix.

Scuderia Ferrari considers that a number of new elements have come to light after the decision was rendered that make the decision reviewable under Article 14.1 of the International Sporting Code.

Scuderia Ferrari is aware that championship rankings will not change, regardless of the outcome. But in light of its importance as a precedent for the future, and in order to provide clarity in the application of the rules in future events, Scuderia Ferrari believes that the decision should be reconsidered by the Stewards."

"Having watched the press conference and the replays of the incident, I came to the conclusion Seb whilst moving did leave a car width, so whilst hard, I thought it was fair.
Unfortunately in the current climate of trying to make a rule fit all scenarios, can sometimes muddy the waters even further. "
