come on alonso you overtook a driver by cutting the corner everyone could see that what you should have done is let him back through but you didnt then you start crying when you were given a drive through penalty, what else were the stewards supposed to do kubica went out so you couldnt let him back past all that was left was a drive through penalty which may have been harsh but was correct and thats when your race went down the tubes as you couldnt take it like two weeks ago.

Was it not a Ferrari that profited with a win when LH passed a car but immediately gave the place back only to be penalised for then reovertaking immediately.
Ferrari would do well to look at their past indiscretions and learn.
As for FA he's just like a spoilt child and would do well to grow up. He should realise he would have to give that place back but carried on regardless.

Quentin: "what else were the stewards supposed to do kubica went out so you couldnt let him back past"

Quentin, as far as I recall, the stewards have never instructed a driver to let another one back past them. That is something drivers started doing as a way of trying to avoid a stewards inquiry into their gaining positions by cutting across the track. If they don't do that and the stewards decide they gained an unfair advantage them the normal penalty is a drive through, regardless of whether or not the passed driver is still in the race. I'd be interested if anyone knows which of the regulations applies here.

British GP was abismal! Punctures...surprise me two main contenders, go out with punctures at start? Is that coincedence? One corsed by (dirty) LH, FA was not in the wrong he had passed RK who tried to take the place back (probably how he broke drive shaft on his car), and in doing so pushed FA off, FA had no alternative...shopuld have corsed the accident...

F1 is loosing more and more audience aroudn the world for these things. Why do you do 20 races? just give the WC to a british driver and to Mclaren after 4 or 5 exhibition races and lets watch real racing, like MotoGP or SBK.

biggest excitment in F1 comes from race direction what a shame.
