Red Bull has expressed its satisfaction that the controversy over Sebastian Vettel's overtaking move on Jean-Eric Vergne is at an end.
Rival Ferrari had written to the FIA asking for clarification about the legality of Vettel's lap four pass of Vergne, which appeared from on board video footage to have taken place under yellow flag conditions. However, following clarification from the FIA that Vettel only passed Vergne after he had been shown a green flag, Ferrari said on Friday that the matter was now closed.
In a short statement issued on Red Bull Racing's website, the reigning champions welcomed the resolution of the matter.
"We are pleased, but not surprised, that the FIA has confirmed there is no case to answer regarding the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix," the statement read. "We are extremely proud of Sebastian's incredible achievement and his third historic title, which makes him the youngest ever triple World Champion."
