5 Second penalty? 5 f**k**g second penalty??

This is a joke.

Nex time the SC comes out, I wuld drive flat out as a driver, gains you probably 20 seconds or so, but you only lose 5 at the end. So gaining 15 seconds fpr brwaching the rules, bravo FIA!

THey really cheated on Fernando and Massa today. A shame, a bloody shame!

Code: Select all

The stewards may impose any one of three penalties on any driver involved in an Incident :
a) A drive-through penalty. The driver must enter the pit lane and re-join the race without stopping ;
b) A ten second time penalty. The driver must enter the pit lane, stop at his pit for at least ten seconds and then re-join the race.
c) a drop of any number of grid positions at the driver’s next Event.
However, should either of the penalties under a) and b) above be imposed during the last five laps, or after the end of a race, Article 16.4b) below will not apply and 20 seconds will be added to the elapsed race time of the driver concerned in the case of a) above and 30 seconds in the case of b).


It seems there's no such thing as 5 second penalty :lol:


Is the old history, the FIA stewards invented the rules when they want and the way they want... :(

5 second penalty? LOL.

Time to just get rid of the Safety Car and red flag races when situations like this arise.

May be there isn't, but it was given :O

Jenson Button, Rubens Barrichello, Nico Hulkenberg, Robert Kubica, Vitaly Petrov, Adrian Sutil, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Sebastien Buemi and Pedro de la Rosa have all received penalties from the Valencia stewards for safety-car rule infringements.

All nine men will have five seconds added to their final race time for speeding under the safety car during their in-laps prior to pitting following Mark Webber’s dramatic crash in the early stages of the European Grand Prix.

In a separate incident, Timo Glock has had 20 seconds added to his race time for ignoring blue flags.

Official results from the FIA will follow.

Just found this

Code: Select all

18.1 The stewards may inflict the penalties specifically set out in these Sporting Regulations in addition to or
instead of any other penalties available to them under the Code.




These other penalties are:



153. Scale of penalties
Penalties may be inflicted as follows in order of increasing
severity :
− reprimand (blame);
− fines;
− time penalty;
− exclusion;
− suspension;
− disqualification.
Time penalty means a penalty expressed in minutes and/or
seconds.
Any one of the above penalties can only be inflicted after an
enquiry has been held and, in case of one of the last three, the
concerned party must be summoned to give them the opportunity
of presenting their defence.
For the FIA Formula One World Championship and the FIA
World Rally Championship, a penalty consisting of the withdrawal
of points over the whole of the Championship may be imposed.
154. Fines
A fine may be inflicted on any competitor, and also on any
driver, assistant or passenger, who does not comply with the
requirements of any Regulations or with any instruction of the
officials of the meeting

When Massa exited the pits he entered in the middle of the pack. When Schumi pitted he got stopped from entering the pack due to a red light at the end of the pitlane. Why did that happen???

Don't think the pack that Massa passed was behind the safety car. just yellow flags? I could be wrong.
