    Autosport also confirming this.

    What a joke the FIA are, if there is any doubt they are bias to Ferrari – we now have it.

    This is a complete joke. FIArri are a joke. Next they’ll penalise any McLaren overtaking move!!! FIA are killing F1

  5. Didn’t Pantano get disqualified from two races for overtaking under yellow just yesterday? Presumably the incidents were difference – but there’s one heckuva difference between 25 seconds and a double disqualification…

    Where they waved yellows?

    Didn’t see any footage of this. What happened?

    Andy, I think Pantano was involved in two incidents in Saturday’s feature race. He crashed into someone at La Source – which got him an initial penalty and shortly after committed the yellow flag incident, so I think they told him his double fine was for below part standards. But I am just guessing.
