I think they were speaking about the first overtaking attempt, where the Hamilton let kimi take the lead again, as should have been done.

At the most a grid penalty in next race. But I don't think it's going to happen.

Did Kimi get and advantage running in the run-off area around Pouhon? No

Massa: "there were so many people going off - especially kimi" Look who's Talking

They didnt penalise Massa with the pit incident. At worse, they should give lewis a 10000 euro fine, no racing penalty.

Do we know who's been investigated? Kimi or Lewis?

Yeah, Massa really deserves the praise in the Ferrari camp.

He kept his head where Kimi didn't..

lets look at it. Lewis fails to take Kimi at bus stop, lets him through then passes him.
They both went wide at Pouhon, Kimi more. nearly hits lewis but lewis goes on the grass as he avoids a williams. kimi spins - lewis leads. kimi goes wide at blanchimont and spins out. Last lap: Lewis almost loses it at bus stop but holds on and wins.

Yes, but before that he overtook Kimi first time by cutting the chicane and then he DID give Kimi position back but I'm not sure he did it properly. Alonso have been penalized for less. :O

Still I don't think there will be any penalties since the conditions were so difficult.
