“ Decision: No further action.
The Stewards reviewed video evidence, heard from the driver of car 5 (Sebastian Vettel) and the team representative.
The Stewards reviewed multiple camera angles, some of which appeared to show that the tyres were not in contact with the white line of the track edge however other angles appeared to show that part of the front “wheel” (when viewed from above) may have been within the bounds of the white line. This cast an element of doubt which is considered significant enough to give the “benefit of doubt” to the driver in question.
Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal certain decisions of the Stewards, in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Article 9.1.1 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicable time limits.”
in that any camera that is not perfectly aligned can be accused of having some element of error of parallax. and therefore any other view that is also not perfect but disputes it means you cannot have a definite answer.
