Hmmm…interesting the Massa/Hamilton incident. Basing the incident on the previous judgements that have been made this year by the race stewards I would have expected a post race time penalty for Hamilton, perhaps a ‘causing an avoidable collision’ penalty for the contact in the final chicane, after all Massa did brake MILES later than Hamilton and still made the corner while giving him room and Hamilton did pretty much use the Ferrari to get the car turned. However, the racing fan in me says it was a genuine racing incident and I have to say I am so pleased about Ferrari and Massa’s views on the matter.
Unfortunately I have a different view of the Schumacher incident, to the point that I also felt it was a racing incident and there shouldn’t have been a penalty applied. It was a shame that the producers kept showing the super slowmo of the incident which makes it look much worse than it actually was watching the full speed onboard from MSC’s car. Also, If Di Resta wasn’t punished, the why the hell was MSC? No Nigel that was not an acceptable explanation that you gave in the forum!
Is it strange that these penalties always seem to be handed out to MSC when there is a British drivers representative on the panel?
Crikey, I am coming dangerously close to using the ‘B’ word that seems to be so feared on the forum at present!! ;)
Ho Hum, great race though!!
