Anyway, at the end of this, it is really wise to see the words of the pilots that were involved in those penalties.

Ron Dennis (answering for Lewis) said: We've all seen similar first corner incidents that triggered no such penalty
Felipe Massa said: In my opinion it was a normal running accident, for the incident with Lewis
and the clearest, justified and "in-this-world" answer given by Sebastien Bourdais:
What am I supposed to do? Roll out the red carpet?

This tells me that I am right in my previous post.
Non should got penalised in this race.

You were right. Hamilton shouldn't have been penalized for first corner. Sebastian not for the pit lane exit & Massa .. Cmon wait .. Massa pushed Lewis, that warrants a penalty. But now its done and dusted. So no point in discussing it ! Race over Flag:##

Thanks to a guy off another forum.


Kovy is not a championship contender, Hamilton is, that's why the FIA penalized Hamilton ( and Massa )
And even if Hamilton pushed Raikkonen off the track ( without hitting him ), he did not deserved a penalty for that! I remember back in 2001 in A1-Ring when Schumacher tried to Overtake rookie Montoya on the outside of the 2nd corner. Montoya outbraked himself and ran Schumi off the track! Montoya was not penalized for that ( for once ).

But Montoya was penalized when he pushed Rubens off the track at US GP in 2003. FIA penalized Hamilton because he is a Mclaren driver ! :shhh:

Lol! :O It's the 3rd time he is penalized this year !
Last year, people said that Hamilton was the Golden boy of the FIA ( especially because of Europe 2007 )! Now it's the reverse!

Since 2002, FIA began to put more and more penalties ( even to Ferrari drivers! ) and sometimes that kills great races, great battle! The Massa-Hamilton or the Massa-Bourdais were racing incidents, but by the past drivers got penalties for those incidents and now we are comparing Fuji's incidents to previous incidents happened last couple of years.....

That picture that has been posted is shot a little bit late. Hamilton and Kimi made contact at the beginning of the braking zone, this picture shows the end. Kimi himself said after the race, that he had been hit by both McLarens, a light touch by Hamilton which didn´t enable him to brake properly and a second touch from Kovalainen that pushed him off the road.


I think the penalty for Hamilton was justified, because no matter if they touched or not, his intention was to rund kimi off the road, so that he stays in the lead and kimi is 2nd at best or worse. In fact that ruined kimi´s race partly, without that manouver I´m sure he would have dictated the pace from upfront.

The same with Massa´s penalty, his move against Hamilton was as deliberate as u like.

Bourdais´ penalty was not justified, he came out of the pits and protected his line, no zig zag nothing, Massa just tried to overtake him round the outside and it didn´t work. Bourdais behaviour was hard and maybe even a bit unfair, but no justification for a penalty.

Why were both Massa and Hamilton given a penalty?
Massa should've been the only one with the penalty he made Lewis spin round like that into 18th place!!

FIA are a joke!

Is there any penalty which was right and the driver deserved it and we didn't said that it was wrong?
