Protest threat to Vettel title

FORMULA One team Ferrari are considering a protest over an illegal overtake by Sebastian Vettel during Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix, which could see his World Championship title handed to Fernando Alonso.

Ferrari’s Alonso lost to the German by just three points after finishing second at Interlagos, with Red Bull’s Vettel sixth. His team are studying footage to see if Vettel overtook Toro Rosso’s Jean-Eric Vergne in a yellow caution zone.
