It was fisichella


As did Fisico himself on Hamilton, and Raikkonen on Hamilton at Spa. But not to the extent that Lewis did. After all, he did give Webber rather a shove off-track.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Referring to the logo-shaped Monza trophy, Shakeri wrote: "I still know of this bank's existence, I still know of the services they offer, and I still know what the logo looks like because it's pasted everywhere during the race broadcasts."

"Logos are fine, but please let the trophies be trophies."


The same disgusting trophies were given in British GP too. That sponsor must really be stopped. Traditional and state-of-art trophies are the symbols of a particular race, which should be preserved, instead of f****ng sponsor logos.

It's a great article you posted, mainly because they quoted my article in a favourable light :)

Anyhow, everything I had to say about this trophy-gate is in the article posted above...

If i remember correctly when Adelaide did some irregularity on the podium, the FIA removed the race from next year's championship... Turkey got a fine for that Cypriot thing, and i seriously doubt anything will happen in Monza, which is a shame really.

Why am I as a Ferrari fan saying this? Because i also think that trophies should be "works of art in themselves" and not some sponsorship logo.

Personally, I hope that corporate sponsors do get a fine of some sort for doing this type of offense, because it's just very disgusting that an old and traditional trophy gets replaced with a logo. Who wants to remember that?
