    Cut the chicane, gave the place back to Raikkonen, that's the advantage lost. Raikkonen hit Hamilton down at the bottom of the main straight, weaved defending down the main straight. Rosberg's dangerous driving causing Hamilton to have to go on the grass, Raikkonen using the run off areas instead of the track to gain an advantage, the fact Raikkonen binned it in the wall. Jeez, so many reasons why it's a **** decision.

    Lewis was screwed, had he been in a red car that would not have been looked at.

    Amazed that no one in the media has pointed out Lewis slowed and let Kimi pass or the fact that Lewis was avoiding a probable crash.

    Kimi was going 6kph faster than Lewis over the start/finish according to McLaren.

    What's the likelihood of the appeal being successful?

    Yep definitely. Such a joke. Even though I want a Ferrari to win the driver's championship I certainly don't want it to be like this. Hopefully the appeal is successful because really...that decision is terrible.

    I remember Schumacher doing a similar thing in 2006 and they all justified his decision by saying, "there was nowhere else he could go". In fact, I think he may even have kept the position.

    FIA has gotten progressively worse since that Austrian GP when Barrichello slowed down to let Schumacher extend his lead in the championship to 700.

    Read in the paper earlier that McLaren shouldn't technically be able to appeal as you can't appeal a pit lane penalty, and that it was basically a retrospectively applied penalty. Didn't see the race, haven't watched much this season, but I find the whole thing to be farcical. By taking 25 seconds off Hamilton I understand that puts him 11 seconds behind, but to assume he wouldn't have made the time up had he had to take the penalty? I don't think you can make that sort of assumption. F1 making a bit of a mockery itself at the business end for the second year in a row.

    For me, the incident became null and void after Raikkonen slammed it into the wall with Hamilton nowhere in sight.

    Why don't you then? Paying about $4 iirc.

    If there's a bit of rain about then Vettel is more than capable of doing what's required. It's not really forseeable though. Average drivers/cars that start at the front always choke. See how many times Webber has been on the front row and how many of those races resulted in a DNF.

    Interesting to hear that not one driver in Formula One had any sympathy for Hamilton re his 25 second penalty - not much respect for the way he drives apparently (a sentimentified that will only be intensified in Webber after Lewis punted him off the track today)

    Wasn't just Webber either. Muscled several cars off the road just to climb into the points. Hope Massa wins the championship.
