that was the worst performance ever from kimi and ferrari.

the first bad news for kimi was the drive-through penalty for not having his tyres fully fitted at the requisite three minutes before the start of the race. - what a horrible mistake of the ferrari crew.

then kimis mistake.. with the broken front wing.. and kimis last action...the accident with sutil....he lost control under braking and ran into the back of the Force India at the chicane -> result of this action adrian and kimi are out of the race.
that was a black day for kimi and ferrari.

forget it and look forward that's the only way of thinking for ferrari.

Ferrari were also a bit late to go dry tyres, albeit Massa said it was due to team radio cut-off.

I really need to blow off some steam after a race like this...

I mean, i tried... i REALLY tried to like the current line of Ferrari drivers, but i just can't... from now on i'm simply a Ferrari fan... not a Kimi fan, and definatley not a Massa fan...

I miss the good old days of Schumacher-Irvine (or Rubens)... :cry:

Massa sucked pretty much today... and Kimi was... well simply an idiot... knocking out poor Sutil like that.
If he'd get a 5 or 10 place penalty at the next race i would be really happy...

He gives out the impression that he'd rather be out with his friends getting hammered than driving... well if he likes it so much he should just go home and quit...

The saddest part is that Hamilton actually benefited from his crash... and the only thing i'm sorry about is Kubica not winning... he drove a faultless race.

And i forgot Rosberg... the ONLY race of the year where his Williams will be competitive, and he gets clipped twice... and finally end up in the wall... a shame...

Raikkonen should be given a penalty, not because I don't like Ferrari but because Sutil was robbed.

Fanatism must not hinder the objectiveness. Penalties will be given to those accidents which can be "avoidable." Can't you see the way car slips down the bridge?

not because I don't like Ferrari but because Sutil was robbed.

Read my post again please before saying fanatism is in my view. Nakajima accidentally took Kubica out behind a Safety Car in Australia and he gets penalized. Kimi takes Sutil out accidentally and nothing (yet). Even Mike Gascoyne said to ITV if it was a Force India taking a Ferrari out he would be penalized but not the other way round, and you know as well as everybody else does he is completely right.

You should compare and judge the things based on the fairness and correctness, not based on the cases, which may direct you wrongly. You should isolate incidents and draw a conclusion accordingly.

If Nakajima accidentally took Kubica out, then it's a wrong decision, which doesn't mean it would be the same today. Though I don't remember that incident but if any grid penalty is concerned in today's race, it would be Alonso's move on Heidfeld. That is purely avoidable crash.

Besides, if you hit a car during Safety car period, that also means it is supposed to be avoidable.
