I missed the shots of the blocking on TV, I was looking away at that point. But after checking the vids and pics in here (thanks everyone
) it's pretty clear that the McLarens were on the racing line when Heidfeld approached them, forcing him to swerve around them. Then Hamilton was like "oops, i can't be here" and stepped away but Heikki stayed on the line and blocked Alonso aswell.
The other cars were outside the racing line, why couldn't they?
@Joostlamers, why do you feel you have to bring Australia Q1 in here, surely even you can see the difference of being in front of someone when there's still 10 min to go from that session than when they are on their last flyer.
I guess sth's impeding you from seeing the facts, I wonder what it could be
When thy give such ridiculous penalties as the one on Alonso at Monza '06, I expect the stewards to be consistent. Bu we never know, do we?
Anyway, one thing is clear for me: the new quali system sucks big time, as I've already said after Australia.
