Have McLaren officially appealed yet? They surely will do so

McLaren: No choice but to appeal

Quote:
Q. (James Allen - ITV) I've got two questions for Lewis. When you came across the line after the incident you've just described, he was definitely in front of you. It said Raikkonen - Hamilton, first and second. That was on the timing screens and it will on the charts, but maybe at issue is the fact that you hadn't lost enough momentum or something. You said you were still accelerating, so could you just explain exactly what you did to let him past? And then the second thing is there was an incident before that where I think you both had a bit of a moment with a Williams and you both nearly hit each other and the Williams was coming back on the track. There were some yellow flags waving there. Was the Williams actually off the track and came back on? It was very hard to tell on the television.

LH: Firstly, what I did, I'd basically taken a short-cut, so I couldn't just accelerate straight from there and keep going, I had to wait - he was in my blind spot - I had to wait until I could see him. I didn't want to wait until he'd flown past because we were still racing. Eventually I could see him accelerating and I knew, OK, this is alright, so I began to accelerate but slowly. I don't believe I was full throttle, I was waiting for him to accelerate past which he did.

What more could I do, I don't know what more I could have done? And the second question: there were yellow flags, I was looking in the mirror, hoping that Kimi wouldn't crash into me. Rosberg was off the circuit and I was running wide but I wasn't going off, I was just running wide towards the white line, but then Rosberg was coming back on, exactly at the point in which I was heading, so I had to turn left to avoid him and take the exit road and go across the grass, otherwise I would have crashed with him.

McLaren are right to say that they have no other choice then to appeal. I just want to make a point: Listen carefully:

What, on earth, could Hamilton do more, than giving back the lead to Kimi??? I just don't get it...

Please refrain from making any incorrect statement or judgement and try to be neutral.

Note: Not the best angle of it, for example it seems to show Lewis directly behind the Ferrari getting a slipstream off it, which TV cameras showed was not actually the case. We also can't see exactly where Kimi was, and the shot lengthens the Ferrari as it is on the left side of the car.
