Hamilton, sato & Button might be facing some kind of penalty after using 2 wet tyre sets in the first Free practice session this morning.

And the best of it is that Hamilton did only 10 laps today. I do not think he had the real need to change the tyre sets, on a wet track.

We'll see if they get a penalty or not.

On the other hand McLaren are claiming that Ferrari did not get any penalty at all after infringing another tyre rule (starting on slicks in Japan), so Hamilton must not get any penalty, either.

I guess we have just to wait and see.

Speed TV are reporting on air that Lewis' engineer claims Lewis used one set of extreme wets and one set of intermediates - not two sets of extreme wets. If true he should escape sanction as you are not allowed to use two of the same tyre type.

Drama begins !yahoo:

Article 25.3 of the F1 Sporting Regulations states: "No driver may use more than one set of wet and one set of extreme weather tyres during Practice 1 and Practice 2."

Penalty and Hamilton ''hmm''

Thats good, if he was penalised on the grid that would have spoilt the racing between the 3 title contenders in my opinion. Tomorrow let the battle commence!!! !grin!

whenever i hear that hamilton is under investigation for something he or his team did wrong, i know now that nothing will com of it and to not expect a penalty...

i was surprised he even got a fine!

dazmoffam, dont complain unless youve had to put up with australian motorsport coverage!
a re-run? whats that? in australia there is no such thing... stay up for the rediculously delayed coverage or nothing!
Thankyou Schumi you will always have a place in our hearts!

TS reports that the tyre rule has been only made to save on expenses etc, The FIA Stewards have ruled that Lewis Hamilton should be penalised for using two sets of wet tyres on Friday morning - but the fine of $22,000 and a voluntary agreement to surrender the partially-worn wets to the FIA so that they cannot be used.
Takuma Sato and Jenson Button received the same penalties

Spanish paper Marca had also asked from all of the drivers who would win the championship. Alonso got 8 votes, Hamilton 6 and Kimi 4. Four drivers voted nothing, including Kimi. Hamilton and Alonso voted for themselves

haha... this rules are encoded in Regulation's from start ...@ japan its was stewards decision to force start on extreme wet tyres which was taken just few minutes before the race :shhh:
As Ferrari proved to FIA they dint receive mail on time !grin!


"It was 100 percent the team's mistake,Lewis did an installation lap on one set of wet tyres, and we just put on another set. It was 100 percent our fault.He only did an in-and-out lap, so there was no advantage, but it was clearly a breach of the rules. Two other people made the same mistake, and it is up to the stewards to decide on the penalty.We are trying maybe too hard, and it was a silly mistake. We can do no more than our best, and we are really trying hard. People make mistakes. I am not trivializing it.It just perhaps shows we are all human. I don't think anyone will imagine there was any advantage there at all. There is a rule there, we broke it, and we just have to get on with it."
Dennis, whose team has been excluded last month from the 2007 constructors' championship, was also humorous about the situation, adding: "I just hope the stewards don't take the constructors' championship points away - oh, wait, they've already done that!"

This will be a great race, I hope it will rain. Because I don't think either Alonso or Kimi can be champions if the weather conditions are normal.

Go Kimi ! Let's hope Alonso crashes Hamilton :D @Beer

Presscon Friday Transcript

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/63448

Q: Does Kimi ever show any pressure?

JT: With Kimi, when you start to know him better, you have to translate his feelings. He's a great guy, he's very dedicated, doesn't complain, just does his job and we are very happy with him, and we are very happy to try to do as much as we can for him as he does for the team
