so says the bbc
just looks like he's been given a time penalty and demoted to third
I was expecting a grid penalty or something for next race until I saw Glock had got a penalty, not so surprised now.
Honestly, I am kinda unsure with it (the 25s). He didn't let Kimi back through properly, and undoubtedly gained an advantage from doing so - but it has been seen before and gone unpunished. As much as what he did was against the rules and so probably should be dealt with, it's not going to help accusations of the FIA helping Ferrari. I don't buy into that, but it might have been better just to let this one go, really.
But who cares - that's eight points for Nicky!!!
What I meant was, the Glock incident I think might not have been given a punishment were it not for the Hamilton one. Hmmm...
but this is a pretty stupid penalty, and is just going to add fuel to all those people who say the FIA just want to stop Hamilton winning the title. I want Massa to win it, but on the track, not off it.
Plus it really spoils what was a great race.
in recent memory and the FIA have to punish mclaren becuase ferrari fucked it all up.
been here before.
also, hungary 06, schumi got away with a similar thing on de la rosa. f1 is becoming a joke.
