While Vettel crossed the line ahead of Hamilton, he was relegated to second place after his time penalty was applied after only finishing 1.3 seconds clear of the Briton. The penalty sparked outrage from Vettel who called the stewards "blind" over team radio and said they were "stealing" the race away from Ferrari.
However, the team confirmed after the race that it intends to appeal the ruling, with notice being submitted to the stewards regarding the penalty on Sunday evening in Montreal. As a result, Ferrari now has 96 hours to put forward new evidence that would formalise the appeal and be referred to the FIA's International Court of Appeal - although it is noted in the sporting regulations that five-second time penalties are not admissible for appeal.

PARIS, June 6 -- US President Donald Trump said at a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in northern France on Thursday that the bond between America and its allies “forged in the heat of battle” of World War II was “unbreakable”.
This despite previously badmouthing the transatlantic military alliance Nato and criticising European leaders.“To all of our friends and partners, our cherished alliance was forged in the heat of battle, tested in the trials of war and proven in the blessings of peace. Our bond is unbreakable,” Trump said.He spoke at a US cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer in front of a beach, code-named Omaha during the landings, which saw 150,000 Allied troops rush ashore in the world’s biggest naval operation to liberate much of western Europe.“Those who fought here won a future for our nation, they won the survival of our civilisation and they showed us the way to love, cherish and defend our way of life for many centuries to come,” Trump said.
He began his speech with a tribute to around 60 US veterans who were in the front row, many of them in wheelchairs. “You are among the very greatest Americans who will ever live. You are the pride of our nation. You are the glory of our republic and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” he said.
MONTREAL, June 5 -- While Red Bull and Honda are pushing hard to improve, team boss Christian Horner is more than happy with Max Verstappen.
He says the young Dutchman stepped into high gear after crashing in Monaco a year ago and watching his then teammate Daniel Ricciardo dominate. “It was probably the lowest weekend of his career,” Horner recalls. “I think he went away from that race and reflected hard on it. Since then he’s really just stepped things up a gear and been a phenomenal force whenever he’s been in the car.” What the F1 world is witnessing in Verstappen this year, Horner says, is “outstanding”. “He’s overachieved in certain aspects and I think he’s got a roundedness of maturity and is very much leading the team development-wise. I think he’s enjoying and relishing that role as well,” he added. Verstappen, who is just 21 but now in his fifth F1 season, agrees with Horner that he has improved in the past year. “I’ve matured, that’s true, and not just because of last year’s accident,” he is quoted by La Presse. “It’s also true in my life in general. “I’m getting older, I have more experience in life, but it’s also true that sometimes you have to make mistakes before you get better. That’s what happened to me, I think,” Verstappen added. He says he is “not surprised” that Honda is now starting to thrive in F1, and thinks the Red Bull car will also continue to improve. “Ferrari and Mercedes still have the advantage, but we are closer each race. I think we will often be competitive this season,” said Verstappen. “The goal is of course to win, which would be a great reward for all members of our team and for the Honda people who are working very hard to get there.”
VANCOUVER, May 9 -- Lawyers for Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou blasted Canadian authorities and US President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying they would seek to have her US extradition case thrown out because her arrest was “unlawful” and Trump’s “corrosive” remarks about her case had prejudiced any trial.
Her team also said at an administrative hearing in British Columbia’s Supreme Court that they would fight extradition on the grounds that the US fraud charges against her failed to satisfy the requirement of criminality in Canada. Lawyer Scott Fenton said Meng’s detention at Vancouver’s airport on December 1 lasted three hours and deprived her of her Canadian Charter rights, when she was questioned about the US charges and her electronic devices seized before she was formally arrested.
“Ms Meng will apply to this court … for an order staying proceedings as an abuse of process,” he said. Her “unlawful search, detention, interrogation and delayed arrest” represented a “pattern of serious charter violations” by Canadian and US authorities, he said.
“Her rights were placed in total suspension,” he said. Fenton also condemned Trump for his “political abuse” of the process, saying his comments on the case were “intimidating and corrosive of the rule of law”. “They should disentitle the requesting state [the US]” from seeking Meng’s extradition, he said, adding that no jury, properly instructed, could find Meng guilty of fraud.But lead crown counsel John Gibb-Carsley fired back, saying that the crown was reviewing an audio recording of her arrest and that the timing of the extradition hearing “should not be held hostage” by Meng’s team of four lawyers.
