Maranello, November 29 - Motor-racing's governing
body FIA said Thursday that Sebastian Vettel did not carry out
an illegal overtaking move at Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix when
the German clinched the Formula One world title.
Ferrari said earlier Thursday that they were asking FIA for
clarification after footage from Vettel's on-board camera
appeared on the Internet that seemed to show the Red Bull driver
overtaking Jean-Eric Vergne, of sister team Toro Rosso, under
yellow flags - which ban such moves.
Vettel came sixth in Brazil to clinch his third world
title, finishing the championship just three points ahead of
Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who came second on Sunday.
FIA sources told motorsport magazine Autosport's website
that there was "no case" to answer and that Vettel's pass was
legitimate.
The sources said the yellow-flag sector ended about 150m
before the turn at Sao Paulo's Interlagos circuit where the move
took place.
