Ferrari bid to overturn title

Ferrari is considering a protest that could lead to the result of the 2012 Formula 1 World championship being overturned.

British and Italian media reports said Ferrari was "evaluating footage" to see if it showed Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel making an illegal overtake in Sunday's Brazilian GP in which he finished sixth and took a third consecutive Drivers' championship, beating Ferrari's Fernando Alonso by three points.

CRYPTIC ALONSO

Ferrari is analysing TV footage from Vettel's on-board camera to determine if the 25-year-old overtook Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne in an illegal area of the track.

Vettel could be dropped to eighth if any protest is upheld and Alonso would be World champion by one point.

Spaniard Alonso tweeted cryptically on Tuesday: "I cannot perform miracles. I make miracles within the rules."

Ferrari, Red Bull and the governing FIA could not immediately be reached for comment but the FIA can decide to investigate even without a Ferrari protest.

Vettel became the youngest triple World champion at Interlagos on Sunday despite being involved in an early collision which left him at the back of the field and facing backwards before he fought his way up to sixth.
