Finally I found a full story
McLaren, Kovalainen and Trulli fined
Spoiler:
Jarno Trulli has been fined $10,000 and officially reprimanded for his behaviour after a first-lap incident with Adrian Sutil at Interlagos on Sunday.

The Italian crashed at the start of the Brazilian Grand Prix after losing control of his Toyota whilst trying to pass Sutil's Force India.

Trulli, 35, was seen running from the site of his crash to German Sutil's similarly stricken car, before the pair almost came to blows.

The stewards ruled that the clash had been a "racing incident", but took a dim view of veteran Trulli ignoring marshals' instructions to leave the track and instead "aggressively confronting" Sutil.

Said Sutil: "Jarno was furious and said it was my mistake but I just told him what had happened to me."

Also fined after the Brazilian Grand Prix was McLaren, who must pay a $50,000 penalty for unsafely releasing Heikki Kovalainen with his fuel hose still attached during a pitstop.

Kovalainen was also given a 25 second race time penalty, but the Finn did not finish in the points.

Driving behind the McLaren at the time was Kimi Raikkonen, whose Ferrari was splashed with fuel and briefly engulfed in flames.

"I ended up with some drops of petrol in my eyes and even now they are still burning, but I'm alright," he said.

Those "fans" are a disgrace. They should be given a life ban from any sporting event.

McLaren is $50.000 not €50.000

But if that't true, it's another ridiculous and not consequent decision by the FIA.

Kovalainen got the time penalty for holding up Kimi so being released incorrectly, so that's a correct decision


Yeah plus the fuel pump disaster.

And I'm wondering why Webber changed his line twice on the first lap...

Those fans are "Disgraceful"??? Its normal in other sports, I like the fact they're passionate, though what they did isn't acceptable. And please Kimi fans do not hate on Webber, it wasn't his fault Kimi went into the back of him.

On a separate issue I loved the way Kobayashi drove today, to see a rookie fight Button like that and then to overtake Nakajima round the outside after being passed was very impressive. Can't wait to see him in 2010, Toyota better give him the drive.

brilliant race. Jenson drove like a champion at exactly the right moment, it would have been c**p if hed not bothered to overtake and hoped that the maths would have worked his way.

Im gutted for rubens though, i really wanted him to win in brazil (although i wanted button for the championship) because i suspect that it would have almost as much to him as gaining the drivers crown, plus i think he deserved it after this season and the last 16 years! still it was not to be.

And i want to give a shout to my main man buemi ;) good race and a solid season, hes outqualified both team mates on allmost every occasion and finished higher than them as well. Hes an example of the old style successful rookie (ie. not hamilton or vettel) who worked his way from the bottom, made mistakes but also gained a few points and was mainly judged against his team mate. Hope he gets a drive.

Also hope Kobayashi gets a drive somewhere, he showed the true spirit of japanese drivers today, ALWAYS prepared for a fight which i think f1 needs.

I think the last few years with the hamilton and brawn stories, plus all of the scandals etc should be made into a film. If youd come to me at the end of 2006 with a plot outline of the last 3 years id have laughed my head off!!! :D For better or for worse, F1 is a soap opera, and i think its beats eastenders hands down!

Congrats button, congrats ross brawn ur both legends!!!!!!

Please, doesn´t generalize. Scummy fans, not brazilians. And how do you know they are brazilians?

But idiots exists everywhere, including in Brazil.
