Wow,what a surpise Hamilton gets yet another penalty i don't know what happened last week then because he only got a reprimand?,i thought last week was too good to be true.

It would be a very good idea if Hamilton put a sock in it now because you can't fight City Hall and if he does pick a fight with the authorities he will lose big time. Suggesting that racism is playing a part in his career is plainly rubbish because if it were he would hardly be driving for McLaren and have been mentored by them from a very early age. Time to grow up Lewis!

So again I ask ... what happened to the 'three strikes' announcement we head last week?

How many strikes does Lewis get for this weekend (after being warned last weekend)?

Also, if a drive-through (or 20sec) penalty is deemed appropriate for causing a single unavoidable accident ... surely the penalty should be far more severe for a repeat offence in the same race?
& if a driver is guilty of it at every second race, surely something more needs to be done? Perhaps 20sec for the 1st offence in a SEASON, 40sec for the 2nd, 60sec for the 3rd, etc?
