Ferrari fail to get Sebastian Vettel Canada GP penalty overturned

• Stewards at Circuit Paul Ricard dismiss Ferrari petition
• Footage of Sky Sports presenter described as ‘personal opinion’

Ferrari’s request to review Sebastian Vettel’s penalty at the Canadian Grand Prix has been rejected by the stewards, a decision that confirms Lewis Hamilton’s victory at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Ferrari presented what they described as “overwhelming” evidence in Vettel’s favour at the French Grand Prix on Friday. However the four stewards who had made their decision in Montreal and reconvened at Paul Ricard rejected it, adjudging that the presentation did not include significant or relevant new elements. They were scathing in dismissing the only original element, video footage of Sky Sport’s presenter Karun Chandhok, as “personal opinion”.
