Toyota have lodged a protest against Scuderia Toro Rosso's Sebastian Vettel for what they claim was an unsafe release from the pits.
The Japanese car manufacturer were unhappy with the way that Vettel was released into the path of one of their cars during the race, and took up their complaint with the race stewards following the event.
Although Vettel finished behind Timo Glock on the track, which means Toyota will not gain any points if the Toro Rosso driver is punished, it would increase the buffer in the constructors' championship between the two teams.
At the moment Toyota are fifth in the constructors' championship, with Toro Rosso sixth - 15 points behind.
