'In Vettel's case, between the last yellow light and the green light there was a green flag being waved.
'The distance is 350 metres here. Vettel responded to the flag and did everything right."

I was talking about the lights, even if a there is an upcoming green light until you actually pass it it's considered a yellow zone...I just saw the waving flag video, and indeed it's fine...nothing to see here
