I would have laughed hard if Rosberg had taken both Kimi and Lewis out.

erm. it was fine if lewis was 4 seconds behind before the chichane, but really he was right up with his diffuser anyway. kimi also ran into lewis at la source.

rain came... kimi went.

There is not a "conditionally law" concept mate. If someone breakes the rule and tries to kill someone, then he's got punished, without further considering whether man is dead or not.

But in this time, I don't know whether Lewis did gain any advantage. The only advantage we think that Lewis put his car into the slipstream of Kimi's car in the way he wanted. So that may be a problem.

Ron dennis :

"First of all we don't know what the investigation is about. One assumes it was the incident between Kimi and Lewis at the chicane. First of all, Lewis was ahead at the chicane and he got pushed wide. He definitely was in the lead coming out of the chicane, we immediately radioed him to let Kimi past. We let Kimi past and then overtook him again before the line.

Inevitably, we wanted to know whether we had actually, that was deemed to be a correction of that, and we checked with Charlie [Whiting, Race Director], of course Charlie can only give an opinion, he's not the stewards, but he gave an opinion that we had complied properly to the regulations. I would even dispute that there was any fault because we had the corner in the chicane, but even if we didn't have the corner we let Kimi back in the lead."

i disagre. breaking the rules should be penalised in any case. but lewis didnt break any rules there.

what you're comparing is a bit strange mate. i see your point but i think its a bit extreme!

true - lewis did, but he wasn't expecting kimi to be so slow into la source i dont think
