The stewards have to see that Lewis would have won anyway as Kimi crashed out. If Kimi crashed as a result of Lewis' pass or finished P2, then yes maybe.

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

He kept his head where Kimi didn't..

Ron Dennis: "We don't know what the investigation is about. I think at the chicane lewis was ahead and was pushed wide. Lewis was ahead, he let kimi through, then passed him. We had the corner at the chicane, but we let Kimi through"

It seems that Lewis didn't properly let Kimi past.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Lewis Cut the chicane in a way that he was able to pass Kimi at La Source which is an advantage. He could have backed off, he did not need to cut the chicane.

There was so much corner cutting,double blocking etc there's no point handing out penalties.

as mark blundell said lewis gained a little bit more momentum by cutting the chicane.
and that helped him to overtake kimi.
