No FIA action after Ferrari rage (GMM) F1's governing body is not expected to take action against Fernando Alonso or Ferrari. The Italian team's response to the outcome of the Valencia race has been incandescent, including Fernando Alonso saying Lewis Hamilton's meager treatment by the stewards amounted to "manipulation".
Ferrari vice-president Piero Ferrari said the mere drive-through penalty for McLaren driver Hamilton's overtaking of the safety car made the European GP a "false race".
And reports on the team's official website have quoted fans as saying Hamilton is a liar and a cheat, McLaren "thieves", and the FIA a "Federation of clowns".
British newspaper The Mirror correspondent Byron Young wrote on Twitter that in "Max Mosley's day", sanctions would now be likely, adding: "Are the FIA going to act or will Jean Todt dodge the first big F1 test of his presidency?"
According to sources on Monday, the FIA is not considering action.
