Problems with color shift (White Balance) on Nikon D800

Strange behavior of the White Balance with huge color shift on Nikon D800.

I discovered today when I was taken some photos in a sport hall that the photos had a huge color shift when I was shooting a series of photo.
The picture turns more and warmer when I shoot a burst of frames.

I did a test with following option on D800
The lens was Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8.
The camera was put on full manual mode.
Aperture: f/2.8
Speed: 1/320 sec
Iso: 5000
No Auto ISO
White balance: Predefined
Image quality: Jpg Fine, Optimal quality
Picture Control: Neutral
Active D-Lightning: Off
Vignette Control: Off
Auto Distortion: Off
High ISO NR: Off
CL mode shooting speed: High
Image Area: DX

We can see on the picture that they are not equal since they are a big color shift.
I have noticed this several time, but this is the first time I did a test and turned off all automatic settings on the camera. It seems that this only happen when I shoot a burst of frame, but I'm not sure.

Has my camera a fault or is this normal?
I am very happy with the camera, I think this happens often since when I shoot and take the picture in Lightroom can I not use the same Whitebalance on all the picture but have to adjust the White balance to different settings even when the photo condition is the same.
Often do I shoot in manual mode.
I always shoot RAW except for this sport event where this picture was taken.

From the first picure in the serie of 6 pctures.

This is the last picure of the series
