Ferrari summoned by stewards

FIA summons Ferrari team bosses following controversial German GP
Ferrari has been summoned to appear before the race stewards following the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

The call from the stewards has come after the controversial radio call that was made by the team that saw Felipe Massa slow to allow Fernando Alonso to take the lead.

Massa had led the race from the start before the call came from engineer Rob Smedley informing him that 'Fernando is faster than you' before the Brazilian was asked to confirm that he 'understood that message'.

Massa then slowed on the following lap to allow Alonso through into the lead, with Smedley then apologising to his driver.

Team orders are banned in the sport following a number of controversial incidents in the past.
