also, i think a 5 place penalty at Monza would have been harsh, but fairer than a penalty now, as he celebrated the race win, had the national anthem and the glory. And massa now gets the win and not the glory, which isnt the way you want to win. Massa is a nice guy but he wouldnt want to win like this.


Yeah Massa is a nice guy.Let me tell u what if Ferrari didn;t lode the compliant then they would have been no investigation and no penalty and Lewis would have got the victory

Remember what happened to alonso in monza 2006, he had an engine failure and michael was equal in point to him.That was like a world championship gone. So he said that because he was furious, he will not say thta today.

Alonso said this before the race, on sunday morning - then briatore had to kop out and say he was only joking. this is what happens when you speak your mind.

An formula 1 driver says reasonably they dont say it simply.But i wonder why did he say that when there was no penalty and no controversy

he said that before the race. he said that after he got penalised for deliberately blocking massa who was half a straight behind him. he said that coming out of a press conference renault gave where they gave evidence that this was false and even showed telemetry.

so sorry to correct you but you're wrong. it was before the race.

No, he said these words after he got 2-sec penalty for his fastest quali time as he allegedly blocked Massa. So it was before the race and Alonso didn't know his engine would blow up.

I think a 25 second penalty was the worst the FIA could have done. If they had given him a 5 place grid penalty for Italy i wouldn't have complained. But in this situation - i saw how much Hamilton celebrated his victory, he was so happy - I only can say &%£@ FIA!!! :<>: :<>: :<>:

I'm out, that's all I can say

they also had to fire 3 team mechanics for putting "Ferrari International Assistance" wallpapers on their laptops and they got shown on tv.

I´ve heard that five minutes ago. I was very angry after the race about Raikonnen. But it´s not good that Lewis has get the ceremony. In case of that the commissioners should wait untill the results are official!! Thats not very human from the FIA!

"McLaren have revealed that Hamilton was 6 km/h slower than Raikkonen as they crossed the start/finish line - which is why they felt they needed to register their intention appeal."

OMG MOMENTUM!
