(REUTERS) - Ferrari are considering whether to lodge a protest that could lead to the result of the Formula One world championship being overturned.

British and Italian media reports said Ferrari were "evaluating footage" to see if it shows Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel making an illegal overtaking move in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix, where he finished sixth to clinch the title.

The German beat Ferrari's Fernando Alonso by three points to rack up his third straight drivers' title.

Ferrari are analysing television footage from Vettel's on-board camera to determine if the 25-year-old overtook Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne in an illegal area of the track.
