I understand that that the yellow-flag sector began just before Turn 3 and ended just before Turn 4. At that point a green light panel is displayed. A marshal is stationed these two points and a marshall clearly waved the green flag at this point. This information was clearly communicated to the teams immediately following the race, and under the FIA rules, if a green flag is displayed before a green light - as in this case, the green flag counts. Ferrari know this, and they must know there is no chance of the decision being overturned. Therefore, their "request for clarification" is sour grapes and quite frankly hurts F1. I badly wanted Alonso to beat Seb, but damn it, Ferrari continue to make it difficult to cheer for them.
