Ferrari pushing ahead with Vettel penalty appeal (2nd Update)
As we told you, a 5-sec penalty cannot be appealed. Ferrari must have finally read the rule book
UPDATE A reader writes, Dear AutoRacing1.com, The stewards, who are likely embarrassed that they got suckered by Mercedes into penalizing Vettel, are not convincing.
The comment that they gave Vettel "the most lenient punishment" allowed ignores the basic fact that the incident was simply a racing incident and they should have decided that and been done with it and not ruin the race. Ira Fierberg, CA
Dear Ira, The damage done to F1 by that Steward decision was reprehensible. IndyCar used to make stupid decisions like that after Wally Dallenbach retired, but recently the Stewards are making much better decisions and have taken the 'let'em race' attitude, especially when racing for the win on the final lap or two.
