Le Castellet, France - Ferrari believes it has 'overwhelming' new evidence to prove that Canadian Grand Prix stewards were wrong in imposing a time penalty that stripped Sebastian Vettel of victory.
Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies told reporters on Friday, before meeting the same stewards at the French Grand Prix, that new evidence that had emerged since the race in Montreal two weeks ago.
"We believe this evidence is quite overwhelming when it comes to establishing that Sebastian did not breach any regulations," he said.
Asked whether it was enough to overturn the outcome of the race, Mekies said it would not be appropriate for Ferrari to comment on that ahead of the meeting.
"We are very respectful of the FIA processes and will be meeting with the stewards so I think we can probably have these discussions next weekend," said Mekies, who worked for the governing body before joining Ferrari in September.
