The Spaniard Fernando Alonso’s car has passed the relevant post-race FIA checks at German GP. Following his Ferrari was returned to the pits, Ferrari said that it passed FIA checks – and there was no issue either from the governing body about him not being able to complete the slowing down lap.
Team Principal Stefano Domenicali said: “They did the fuel sample as after the race there had to be one liter of fuel. It is all done. So nothing has happened. It was just a precaution.”
Domenicali refused to elaborate on the reasons as to why Alonso did not have enough fuel to complete the slowing down lap. FIA also stated that Mark Webber would not face any sanctions for stopping on the return to the pits to pick Alonso up – even though it could have been viewed as a breach of the rule requiring cars to proceed directly to parc ferme.
Equally, no punishment was handed out for Alonso’s lift back to the pits on the right-hand sidepod of Mark Webber’s Red Bull.
