Is this the proof that would be enough to see Sebastian Vettel stripped of his third F1 world championship crown?

This is just one of many 'questionable ' things Vettel got up to during the race
ie -he should have also received a drive thru penalty for hitting Senna the same way that Hulkenberg was given for hitting Hamilton
I dont understand or like how RedBull seem to hold so much sway over F1 that they are able to get away with things all the time in a way that other teams arent

There is a marshal waving a green flag BEFORE Vettel makes the pass.

quote:"The controversy over Sebastian Vettel's third Driver's Championship continues as a new video surfaced showing Vettel passing Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne when there was a solid yellow light on the steering wheel warning system. The problem with this video is that you can clearly see a marshall waving a green flag in the footage as well."

All international and probably every other set of local motorsport rules state that you are not allowed to pass under yellow/caution until passing the next green flag location. The yellow flag/caution area extends till the next flag location, the areas extend from point to point so the green flag is only valid after its location.

He's German. Who was the greatest German F1 Driver? Yes Shuey, the great rule breaker! Vettel has been watching Shuey video's probably supplied by Helmut Marko. Schuey was hardly ever properly penalised, because to people like the FIA and Ecclestone he was the goose who laid the golden egg. Vettel is now trying to pull the same stunts, you've only got to look at the race that Lewis won a week or so ago, where Vettel had tried a Schuey blocking move and complained over the ship to shore radio that Lewis was too close when he overtook!Penalise him now, if you dare!
