in my opinion, anyway.

its not like it made a lot of difference. lewis wouldve rather kimi finish second as massa wouldve been 4 not 2 points behind. so yeah im with you that it sucks that kimi messed up. but please cut the lewis took unfair advantage c**p!

well maybe i have to agree with shail, maybe the mclaren computer registered an sort of accident and switched into safety mode with the gearbox. it's odd, but mclarens have those things like that sometimes.

wow Kubica is better than Kimi :) The World Champion will be Massa or Hamilton I think that's sure after this Race now.

well if lewis had stayed and finished second it would have been easier for him to win the championship, because kimi would again be in contention and ferrari would have to support two drivers.

Video footage showed Hamilton fall just a short distance behind Räikkönen on the main straight, and if he is deemed to have gained an advantage will likely face a penalty of 25 seconds, which will drop him to third place. A grid penalty for next week's Italian Grand Prix is another possibility if the stewards find against him.

Stewards are also investigating Nick Heidfeld, Robert Kubica and Fernando Alonso for possible overtaking under yellow flags, presumably when stewards were recovering Raikkonen from his stricken Ferrari.

You guys can think what you want, we live in a free world, I respect your oppinion and I also think that Hamilton is a very good river, no doubt about that. But for me all the hype around him is way too much, he is overrated, especially in Britain.
He´s still a long way behind the best drivers of all time, which are Michael, Fangio and Senna.
Almost every 2 races he makes 1 or 2 minor mistakes and gets away with it. His opponents are too unconsistent and his car is unbreakable.

Even if i compare Alonso in 2005 and 2006 to Hamilton in 2007 and 2008 Alonso was way better, he made about 3 mistakes in 2 years, Hamilton made about 10 mistakes this season alone.

No offence, just my oppinion and you can´t change that.

I do not hope that the Stewards investigate Lewis Hamilton. I think he would be the winner nevertheless because Kimi crashed. It would be stupid if Hamilton woll get a Punishment
