'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

Who would want to say they won the championship because of a manipulation by the FIA in points tho really? You win the championship on the track, thats the way it should be.

I guess I'm still a bit butt hurt about him selling out Mclaren in 2007. Great driver, not a fan of the person at all though.
