Ralf’s podium in doubt

UPDATE It was Scott Speed and not Ralf Schumacher that was penalized for passing under a yellow. Speed lost his championship point and the results of the race have been revised.

04/02/06 (GMMf1NET) Ralf Schumacher's breakthrough podium could be snatched away by the stewards, with suggestions that the Toyota driver illegitimately passed Nick Heidfeld (BMW-Sauber) under yellow flags.

The rumor would explain the fact that official confirmation of the Albert Park results have not yet been published by the governing body, the FIA.

Indeed, Germany's Heidfeld said his compatriot passed him 'within meters' of yellow flags to indicate a safety car period.

He finished behind Ralf, in fourth place.
