Ferrari had previously said they would contest Vettel’s five-second time penalty through the FIA’s International Court of Appeals. However, as the court’s own rules state than in-race sanctions cannot be appealed, it’s understood the team is preparing an alternative challenge.

Speaking to Motorsport.com, a Ferrari spokesperson said: “We are still working on [the appeal] and we are collecting more evidence.”
