Well said, Don Woodrow. I was already annoyed when Di Resta got his drive through. The guy is trying to pass and gives us a spectacle, and we reward him by giving him a drive through penalty. Then when Hamilton did the same thing, it was a given he was gonna get a stupid ass penalty as well. Shame.
Respect for Schumacher knowing how much to close the door (which he did, but still left enough space for a car).
Massa got what he deserved. That was pathetic the way he closed the door and got his car destroyed for it by not even opening after they touched. Was he hoping to crash both cars beyond recognition? What a douchebag. Lucky that crash in the tunnel didn't end up in injury.

Anyway, Lewis makes racing interesting with passes on track. Alonso (although I'm not a fan) makes racing interesting too. Kobayashi as well. Even Webber to a lesser degree.
But Vettel and Button, although skilled drivers are no racers. They can't pass...
We need more racers. More Sennas, less Vettels...

Now what would have happened if Michael Schumacher had done the same thing?, one race ban?, disqualification?, because we're talking Lewis Hamilton, he'll get away with it because he's British, I'd say the stewards weren't harsh enough, he's really shown his true colours, arrogant beyond belief blaming everyone but himself, showed his inexperience in full.

I think they should have given room like lewis did the exact for shumi? why are the racers always penalised for racing? He is the most exciting thing in F1 and for years they have been tring to make the sport more interesting,,,,Guess what fans want to see racing thats why we love motogp because theres passing. If you look at the pics Hamilton is well up the inside on both passes. Lets make sure we dont discourage racing and make sure drivers have to give each other room then we will see more attemts and better racing not just a merry-go round. Stupid turn in by massa -dont believe me look ate the shots.. maldanardo pass was a bit close though but if he turned in early like lewis said i dont know.

This breaks my heart but as a McLaren & and old Ron Dennis fan and to be fair a total anti Ferrari and Shumi fan I have to hold my hands up and declare todays judgment was wrong .... Lewis was wrong om both counts .. but worst of all he threw his rattler out of the pram with his interview .. if his hand gestures were not bad enough the race afterwards card was over the top. To quote the old saying "Take it like a man " unlike Shumie of the past STOP BLAMING OTHERS .. take the hits ane race like a pro or else end up like Shumie ....... please Lewis cop on .. for us .. true fans

Solved the problem...
A new button for the steering wheel Which will illuminate a GREEN light on the rear of the car meaning 'You CAN pass me', maybe with an arrow showing which side to drive around.

The whole lot makes me sick... Trying to pass another car IN A RACE... it shouldn't be allowed.

I like Hamilton and think he is one of the best current drivers.
I like his aggressiveness and the way he ALWAYS tries to push right to the limit.

BUT- doing that is risky and can lead to penalties and accidents. That is what happens when you a pushing to limit and just beyond.

When you make it stick- you get praise.
When you fail you get penalties and grief.
A very fine line to dance in there but that line has ALWAYS been there.

What really disappoints me is that Hamilton seems to have been taking sportsmanship lessons from Alonso lately. Not a good mentor....

You pushed, Hamilton and pushed just a hair too hard in bad spots and you got caught up by it.

Get over it and don't whine about it.

And here is the thing: you ARE one of the best right now, but when you are in a bad spot instead of making it worse by pushing too far past the car's limits, just take it down one notch and stay out of trouble and do better in the NEXT race.

so what is he meant to do, not try and overtake?? and in all honesty comon, the guys turned into him, he was up the inside and the had no reason to turn their cars into Hamilton. As a fan I like to watch drivers going for it, not driving around aimlessly behind a car.
