Firstly great pic for the story secondly had a laugh over this article.
Four drivers given reprimands
By Pablo Elizalde Sat, Jul 31st 2010,
4 Formula 1 drivers have been given reprimands for failing to stay above the minimum lap time set by the FIA ECU during qualifying in Hungary.
The rules state that "drivers must stay below the maximum time set by the FIA between the safety car line after the pit exit and safety car line before the pit entry."The rule was introduced earlier this year in order to avoid drivers going too slowly back to the pits.Renault's Vitaly Petrov, HRT's Sakon Yamamoto, Virgin's Timo Glock and team-mate Lucas di Grassi have been reprimanded for driving too slow

cont... slowly following the end of the qualifying segments.
The maximum time in Hungary was one minute and 26 seconds ( from AUtosport.com

What made me laugh is that the time they are supposed to conform to was actually faster than Sakon's qualifying lap... :D

You could see from Webbers comments that he's lost some of the motivation to race. Just like Kimi did on last year. And I wount blame them, there's a start and then you just drive behind someone without a real chance of overtaking. And just when you start to fall asleep there's a pit stop. And then again you try to stay awake for the rest of the 50 laps. Only good thing is that you earn millions and you can do something interesting with that money in your free time. :)
