This shows how inept the FIA are. They have to wait till almost raceday to discuss this? Give me a break! With all of the technology that we have these days a tele/comp conference is easily done. Stupid asses! :? :) Ed

For anyone who want to know the truth and be informed about Lewis the angel's other SC indiscretion (GP2 Imola 2006) and guess what?? it was even published by CRASH. net (lol)
That is why Flavio was going on about FIA Black flagging him as they did before. unfortunatelly for LH uncle Ron was not there to save the day, Shame really!!

" The top nine drivers all took their chance to stop under the pace car, with Hamilton getting out first, using the opportunity to take a drive-through penalty for jumping the start. Exiting the pits, the young Briton saw the two Campos Racing cars - Adrian Valles having started from the pits after stalling and Felix Porteiro after an excursion at Rivazz

It would prove a costly mistake. Although he pitted on the next lap for new tyres, and the safety car came back to the pits, Hamilton was black-flagged for passing it after his initial stop..."

@jefemano, you need to let it go mate! Dragging up events from 2006!!! Dear, oh dear.

On the regulations why not just adopt the American system used in IRL and NASCAR. Let's face it the Americans have been using safety cars for a lot longer than over here in Europe and from what I've seen of the IRL televised here in the UK they seem to have the regulations well sorted out and when the SC is deployed there are never any incidents of this kind.

I see so Hamilton saw 2 other cars go past the SC and followed them thinking he was being let through too, and that's how he got black flagged.

Wow, just wow.

So much for the dirty cheating scumbag all you haters would like to think he is.

hamilton serving his drive through sixteen laps after the indescretion was a bit ridiculous, that about half an hour (one third race time) later, how long did it take the stewards to even know that the offence had been commited when cw must have been alerted to it instantly? . . sounds like charlie and race control needs upgrading!

JEFEMANO, what the FU&£@ are you talking about? You need to let it go, I cannot understand what you mean, what you said doesn't make sense, your English/your grammar, your hatred, to funny man, this attitude/system/reasoning is constantly used on me but being able to decipher the mind sets of these unbiased self appointed experts and one hundred percent virgins where honesty is concerned, mostly due to age it now a day's makes me feel over eight feet and weighing over one quarter ton.
