    Really, i was full of hopes for Alonso winning after Sebastian spun on first lap.
    Red Bull and Vettel were very lucky also with being chicky and smart. :mad:

    Rules do not say anything about breaking a seal. Well it does, it says you will loose 2 positions.

    And it says it is a 20 seconds penalty for overtaking under yellow.

    Ferrari was penalyzed for breaking the seal. Shouldn´t RBR be if the pass was under yellow???

    Just hypothetically, lets assume that RBR did overtake in an illegal way and that they will receive a penalty that results in Vettel losing the WDC to Alonso.

    What will happen then? I think the time to bridge the gap to the first GP of 2013 will be over in no-time. Would be good if the FIA just makes a final statement about this.

    This is incorrect, and the pass was legal. Look at this analysis:

    Caramidaru, that is complete nonsense to say that the Toyota let Hamilton pass. Glock was on slicks and Hamilton had a rain tire on. Not a chance in hell that Glock could defend against Hamilton.

    several videos show it wasn't yellow!

    and HAHAHAHA - sorry Ferrari was always and will always be a cheating team "let Michael pass for the championship" or "oops, the submission of Massa just broke".. or " Schumacher tries hitting Villeneuve." ect. ect. ect..

    Sorry - no RBR and Vettel deserve the victory especially after the bs after the Austin GP!

    Cool, then let FIA explain it, make an official statement, and bring on 2013, that is the aim of all this.

    Vettal's overtakes were all legal. The pass on Vergne was done after a Green flag which was on the left hand side of the track just after turn 2.
