Date set for Ferrari to argue Vettel Canada penalty

Ferrari have been summoned to a hearing at Le Castellet on Friday, where the team will present evidence over the attempts to reverse the decision to penalise Sebastian Vettel, stripping him of victory at the Canadian Grand Prix two weeks ago.

Vettel took a five-second penalty for cutting across Lewis Hamilton as he re-joined the track, having gone wide at the second chicane of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

The stewards were swift in punishing Vettel, who crossed the line first but had already been informed of the decision.

Vettel, Ferrari and F1 fans were enraged at the result, which gave the victory to Hamilton, ensuring Mercedes have won all seven races so far this year.
