F1 » The move that could cost a world title?


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

FIA already has. Waving flags supercede static panels. Vettel did nothing wrong and FIA confirmed it.

Absolutely no one besides spanish media is giving this any credence whatsoever. That should tell you something.

Article 2.4.1, Clause 5: “If more than one means of signalling is used, the Supplementary Regulations of the event must specify which of them is regulatory.”

So all this "certainty" that one side is right or not due to the flag waving is spurious.

Facts:
Vettel did have yellow on his steering wheel and ahead on the light board.

He did push his KERS (Check the videos) before the marshall post with the green flag while he was still under yellow.

Both are deserving Champions - so let's give the FIA a chance to review.

Loser Alonso trying anything to get his grubby hands on the title again, have a look at the video on bbc sport website, there is a marshals post half way between the last yellow light and the first green light, In the marshals post a marshal is waving a green flag, the bbc video slow mo's it, still not easy to see, and vettel doesn't overtake until well after the flag, but before the light which was the 2nd green indicator

Talk about a sore loser...

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!
