Ferrari Vice-President Slams FIA For Being Unprofessional

1 Mins read

Ferrari vice-president Piero Ferrari has expressed his anger after Fernando Alonso and the team were left fuming at the stewards for a late decision to penalise Lewis Hamilton for passing the safety car. The race would also see a total of nine drivers penalised for not staying within safe speeds behind the safety car.

In a statement released on the Ferrari website he said: “I am incredulous and bitter, not just for Ferrari, but for the sport as a whole, as this is not the sort of thing one expects from professionals.”

Before going on to compare Formula 1 to American-based series: “For a long time now, I have also followed races in championships in the United States, where the appearance of the Safety Car is a frequent occurrence, but I have never seen anything similar to what happened today at the Valencia circuit. If it raises some doubts over the actions that led to a false race, to me that would seem more than reasonable.”

The reaction to criticise the race stewards decisions have echoed across the Tifosi, with fans heading online to express their outrage at a decision they feel was McLaren and Hamilton biased.
