FIA officials 'angered' by Ferrari outbursts - report

Jun.28 (GMM) FIA officials may be considering action against Ferrari in the wake of the Italian team's post-Valencia outbursts.

Earlier on Monday, it appeared the governing body would not respond, after Fernando Alonso accused stewards of manipulating the race, and other Ferrari figures were similarly outspoken.

The famous team's figures are angry about the mere drive-through penalty imposed on Lewis Hamilton for overtaking the safety car, allowing the McLaren driver to finish second in the race while Alonso was just ninth.

But in the past, especially in the reign of Max Mosley, the subsequent cries of foul might have met with a sanction, but sources indicated that the FIA is not considering disciplinary action against Ferrari or Alonso.

However, the Guardian then reported that "a number" of FIA officials are indeed "known to be angered" by the Ferrari outbursts.

Undeterred, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo joined the dissenting chorus on Monday, insisting the outcome of the race was "misrepresentative", and the events "very serious and unacceptable".

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner commented: "I don't think it was manipulated. The FIA just need to look at the safety car rules in the future."
