The rule is you give the position back. But to decide this a hour after the race when the guy who was in the red car smashed his car into the wall on the next lap. He also had to cut the corner cause if he hit that wet astro turf stuff he would have hit him. When the race director says it looks ok to the team when asked he should have said no it doesn't and let him back by.

Also your only allowed 1 blocking move he made like like 3 and then passed hamilton again under a yellow flag. I wouldn't say it's a perfect situation on both parts but to give the race to the clown 14 seconds behind is a farce.... especially after the podium celebration etc.


I think this will be appealed. Alotta peeps is outraged. nikki lauda is pe-od for sure.

F1 wants overtaking and racing and they got it.

2 years of bogus titles.



but anywayz back to r/c

Anyways, who is down for some 4 wheel action on Friday night?
BS i wouldn't be so mad about if the penalty was handed out during the race. I wanted kimi to 4peat.

I happened with a two laps left, they didn't have time to investigate it until after the race. Again, I don't have a problem with it, I'm not happy about it, but I have no problems with it.

Yea that's the thing with f1 you have to wait for it. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does it's nail biting.

RB you are wrong about the penalty. The rule states that you cannot gain a competitive advantage by shortcutting the track. He gained a competitive advantage, without a doubt.

Well me and Kimi Raikkonen feel differently.........


La Gazzetta dello Sport quotes defending World Champion Kimi Raikkonen as being prepared to testify on behalf of arch rival Lewis Hamilton at the FIA hearing that will result from Vodafone McLaren Mercedes' protest of the penalty imposed on Hamilton after the Belgian Grand Prix.

"I don't care what the stewards said, as far as I was concerned, Hamilton let me by as we passed the pits", said Raikkonen in Geneva today. "I got ahead, I tried to defend the position and the race was on again. My car was for sure very difficult on the prime tyres in the rain and Lewis got by me into the hairpin. That was that."

Raikkonen went on, "For sure, I don't like to lose but I don't like to win through stupid decisions. People say I have lost the love (for F1) but yesterday I showed that second was not what I wanted. There are five races to go and I plan to win them all. I'm not the sort to give up that easily."

Asked if he was prepared to testify to that effect if the McLaren protest goes to the FIA, Raikkonen simply said, "Yes, why not."
