Sorry, but thats just the way it is in the real world. Im sure if we were face to face with each other there would be blood

No, real life is not what you define. Mature people talk to each other, children get fight. Childish opinions or offensing shouldn't be welcomed just becasue real life is about fight and war, which is in fact an ill-condition.

People should wait their nerves to calm down to write posts.


I am a child.

and also, After reviewing video footage, stewards decided the McLaren driver had gained an illegal advantage even though Raikkonen later crashed out. this is my point. if kimi finished p2, then fair play, demote lewis. but he didnt. massa lost nothing, yet he gained something. ? :huh:

also, off topic: I hope no members have been affected by the extreme flooding in England and by tropical stroms in Haiti.

Difference's of opinion gentlemen so please dont let it get out of hand ok? :D

I'm on a Ferrari forum , and the vast majority of them see sense and don't think there was anything for which Hamilton to be penalised.

Just face it guys: Your little angel aka Lewis H. again went over the top and was way too agressive, unsportsmanlike and as a result he was punished.

How, by being pushed by Kimi? Thats unsportsman like.

In Monza you're allowed to cut the chicane at least 2 times, so way on EARTH should Hamilton get a penalty, HE GAVE THE SPOT BACK!!!! Where are we talking about, this is the silliest thing EVER, I am FURIOUS!!!

yes, but thats a ferrari forum

@joost: yes, you are right. and hamilton gained no sporting advantage. if he did then penalise him, but not 25s. two drivers have gained what they should not have gained

Everybody relax, there have been equal controversial decisions:

Last week, Castro-Neves was forced to let Justin Wilson through, although he didn´t do anything wrong

or in 1994 Michael was disqualified after a spin on the curb, because his undertray was 1 milimetre too thin.

So it has nothing to do with Ferrari. Just relax. If Hamilton deserves the championship he will win it, don´t bother. He´s still in the lead.

If hamilton relinquished the position back why the hell is he still paying for it? That's the stupidest call I've ever seen!

FANTASTIC RACE THOUGH. THIS IS THE WAY F1 SHOULD BE! I don't care if Hamilton got 3rd, he was the #1 driver in that race.

Hi to all the guys.I think the decision of giving hamilton a penalty is justified.In the same race his teamate Heikki also got the Drive through Penalty when he almost collided with webber.The justification from race control was" Dirve through penalty for Car 23 invloved in avoidable incident". If Lewis would have backed off and let Kimi cross the line and then overtook him the FIA would have no problems with it.But the senario was same like Heikki & pls remember that Kimi had the racing line. Just hoping that Kimi comes back strong in the last 5 races.He has a 19 Point deficit to Massa.Only if Ferrari stays fair.

in 1994 michael wasn't with Ferrari but with Benneton... but in 1997 he was disqualified by the FIA! So thats a valid point I guess! :)
