Toyota Lodge Protest Against STR, Stewards Throw It Out

Shortly after the Singapore Grand Prix, Toyota lodged a protest against rival team Scuderia Toro Rosso as they felt Sebastian Vettel was unsafely released from his pitstop in to the path of Timo Glock. Despite Glock finishing ahead of Vettel in the race – so any punishment to the recent race winner won’t effect Glock’s result – it would have enabled a larger gap between the two teams in the constructors battle.

Toyota went to the stewards upon completion of the race to lodge their protest, but shortly later after the stewards had examined the video evidence and interviewed both drivers, they have decided not to take any action. Therefore, Sebastian Vettel will keep his fifth-place finish, and the points gap between the two teams will remain at 15.
