It is great that they FIA is actually tyring to do something to correct their poorly written rules. This would never have happened under Mosely. It seems that they finally are seeing how poor governance harms the sport.

I wonder what the FIA would do if all the german schumacher fans boycotted the german gp this year unless the fia give schumacher his 7th place back.
The schumacher fans should hit ecclestone in his wallet,he'd soon be on the phone to jean todt to give schumacher his 7th place back if he thought it was going to cost him a quid or three.

I just thought that f1 could do with some fan power thats all,rather than fans moaning on forums there should be a way the fans can let the fia know there displeasure at some of there decisions.

@doris - The FIA know what a mess this was but they cannot right the situation without totally losing face. If they let Schu keep the position it probably is not fair to Alonso. Within the rules they cannot just correct the finnishing order. The only way they might have been able to rectify it would have been to say that in light of the stewards error (waiving the green flags) they will classify the cars based on the last green flag lap.

On the bright side it really will have no effect on the championship.
