    ^^ Looks like Alonso is pushing this protest. Smells like 2008, when Hamilton was able to overtake on the last turn.

    Let's see if Alonso will get his wish.

    Here's the vid found on youtube:

    May di tama akong napansin sa STR... Bat sobra ata ang pag slowdown nya, ang layo pa naman ng corner.

    A is shown marshal waving a green flag in the first image, and yellow on the second image. Purpose of the second image is for color distinction.

    Not good for Formula one...

    If that is the case and if any protest is made and upheld, it could result in a retrospective 20-second penalty for the German.

    That would drop the 25-year-old from sixth to eighth, costing him valuable points and a third successive world title.

    Alonso, who finished the race at Interlagos in second place behind Jenson Button, would then top the standings by a single point.

    If a driver is caught overtaking in a yellow-flag zone, the punishment is either to drive through the pits at restricted speed if the race is still under way, or 20 seconds added to a driver's race time if the incident takes place close to the end of the race or is investigated after the race.

    The footage shows Vettel passing two flashing yellow lights then overtaking Vergne down the straight, completing the move before reaching a flashing green light, indicating the end of the yellow zone.

    Rules dictate that the 'yellow' zone ends only when the driver passes the first 'green' indicator.

    Drivers are alerted to caution zones by an indicator on their car's dashboard display.

    The yellow flag indicator in Vettel's cockpit is on the whole time.

    STR is also owned by RED BULL. Given the scenario you wouldn't expect them to make life difficult for Vettel.

    If they spotted that during the race, Vettel would have just overhauled it after taking a drive through .It occured at Lap 4, after Vettel collided and ended up dead last...

    Spaniard Alonso tweeted cryptically on Tuesday: "I cannot perform miracles. I make miracles within the rules."

    Oh you Spaniard!

    Ferrari insisted that Alonso, who was second at Interlagos, should have been the man celebrating a third career title, pointing to controversial races in Belgium and Japan to support their argument.
    Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali said that Alonso paid a heavy price for first lap exits in Belgium and Japan where he was shunted out of contention by Lotus duo Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen respectively.
    The Italian giant had been further aggrieved when Vettel, accused of blocking Alonso in qualifying in Japan before going on to win the race, escaped with just a reprimand.
    "We are proud of Fernando," Domenicali told www.autosport.com. "But we are very disappointed because the one who deserved this championship was really him.
    "It is a shame because, after such a long season that we really fight in all conditions, we raced 18 races and not 20 - and being second by three points is not a lot.
    "Watch the facts. Zero points in two races (Belgium and Japan) so we have done what we have done with 18 races. The others had 20 - and the points were over 20 races. These are facts, not words."
    Alonso, who was second behind Jenson Button of McLaren in the race, also insisted his campaign had been undermined at Spa and Suzuka.
    "The championship was not lost here," said the two-time champion.
    "The championship was lost when (Romain) Grosjean flew over my head (at Spa) or when Vettel surprisingly only got a reprimand after qualifying in Japan."
    The FIA could decide to investigate even without a Ferrari protest.
