It's open to interpretation. Get over it already. Just like in football. One referee may show a yellow card for a foul committed, while some other will show red for exactly the same thing. Hamilton wasn't blocking Petrov's moves, he was just trying not to give Petrov the slipstream, and Petrov was following. Still, I'm not saying it was a %100 legit move though. That's why he got a warning.

Actually there were more...but I'm glad it did not happen after all if the stewards did punished lulu with a stop and go the outcry from lulu's groupies would have been foul play and we would not have seen the end it.

rob. it might not be correct to say that he was faster than petrov, therefore giving him the right to weave! petrov had repassed him, and was right on his gearbox, all down the straight, so speeds were very similar, and it is possible that petrov could have slingshot past him under braking. the stewards obviously thought so, as did charlie whiting, as well as a lot of experienced commentators

If it was against regulation he (lulu) should have had the penalty... why not? because he was "faster" bull...t

Macca always get away with it, and Lulu is a dirty driver. Period.

arcuid, you are rigth... but Lulu was not affected by the spygate... nor back in hungary (where he was not penalized and Alonso did)

Anyways... I wonder why he keeps on doing stupid things... like if his race is the only thing that matters.

Hamilton moved to break the tow of Petrov and not to impede him from overtaking, in fact he left Petrov a clear lane through each time. Even Martin Brundle said that he had done nothing wrong.
