Ferrari has submitted their intention to appeal against the decision to punish Sebastian Vettel with a 5-second penalty that cost him victory in the Canadian Grand Prix.

Mr. Vettel lost the rear end of his Ferrari, when under pressure from rival Lewis Hamilton, on the approach to Turn 3, causing him to skate across the grass before rejoining in the path of the MercedesAMG.

The stewards deemed he re-joined the track in “an unsafe manner” and “forced Car 44 (Mr. Hamilton) off track” and handed him a 5-sec time penalty, which demoted him to 2nd at the Chequered flag.
