Le Castellet, France - A newly-married Sebastian Vettel and his Ferrari Formula One team hope to persuade stewards on Friday to review a controversial decision that cost the German victory in Canada two weeks ago.
Sporting director Laurent Mekies, who previously worked for the governing FIA as head of safety, will represent the Italian team at a hearing after first practice for the French Grand Prix at Le Castellet.
Neither Ferrari nor Vettel, sporting a wedding ring after marrying long-time partner Hanna last week, were giving anything away about what new element they might present to make their case. The right of review calls for a team to present significant and relevant new evidence that was not available at the time. Ferrari has given no details "due to the sensitivity of the matter".
"Ask the team," said Vettel when pushed for more information on Thursday.
The stewards have sole discretion to determine whether such a new element exists and will either dismiss the request or accept there is a case for a further hearing.
