The FIA writes Ferrari a letter

2012 Brazilian Grand Prix

To, finally, close the book on the 2012 F1 world championship the FIA has written a letter to Ferrari. While we can’t bring you the exact content of that letter, we can confirm via an official FIA statement that Sebastian Vettel’s status a triple world champion is safe:

The FIA received a letter from Scuderia Ferrari, seeking clarification on Sebastien Vettel’s overtaking manoeuvre in Sao Paulo on Sunday.

In the spirit of transparency and goodwill, the FIA wishes to make public the receipt of this letter.

The Federation also informs it has replied to Scuderia Ferrari, in the same constructive spirit, stating that as the overtaking manoeuvre was not in breach of the regulations, and therefore there was no infringement to investigate, it was not reported to the Stewards by Race Control.
