Alonso AND Hamilton hit with 20 second penaltys

Postby Wacky » Sun 10 Apr, 2011 2:14 pm

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso have been hit with 20-second penalties following a collision in Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix.

The verdict means that Hamilton drops from seventh to eighth place, although Alonso retains sixth.

Surprised by this one, personally.

What in tarnation?

A racing incident I would've said. At a pinch, Fernando might deserve a penalty, but I don't see what Lewis did wrong @@!#

Read the full facts befor jumping to conclusions... The penalties are for TWO seperate incidents... both of which the driver concerned was declared guilty, as both driver have not challanged their penalty we must accept that both drivers accept their culpability for their actions.

Lewis was just unlucky to be within 20sec of the guy behind so lost a place in the final standings...

A bit early in the season for Bernie to be trying to have 10 drivers going in to the last race with a chance of winning the title. >?:PLO


The only logical conclusion is that the stewards are trying to justify the money they get paid.

I still view it as a racing incident and heaven forbid, I agree with Whitless. Racing is what I want to see when I switch on the box to watch a GP. Pity the rule makers don't always seem to agree.

Not so sure about that John.In the Glory Days of Spanky Max anyone challenging an FIA penalty usually saw it doubled, tripled or quadrupled for their isolence. Hopefully things have moved on since then but it may be the teams and drivers still simply felt it wasn't worth rocking the boat over.

But as you say they have accepeted the penalty and we move on to China - and hopefully more equally close racing between the drivers concerned. :nod:

As a Ferrari fan, I can only hope that the only time Alonso is anywhere near Hamilton is when Hamilton is being lapped :whistle:

Hamilton got his penalty moving twice on the main straight, the same penalty he recieved last year for the same offence.

Looking at the start though, Vettel moves twice on the run down to Turn 1..

Of course he did, and I'm sure if you carefully analyse every driver in the race, I'm sure you'll find most fall foul of this at some point. As they would have done in the previous race, and all races prior to that. I thought the days of silly penalties were gone when Max "retired" but sadly, I was wrong on that point.
