@ bobby

I initially felt the same way about the Massa incident but have since very closely looked at a recording of the incident.
Hamilton made a bad decision both times and earned the penalties.

The other cars had valid racing lines and turned because that was the line they needed to turn on or else crash. And they were both there FIRST.
There was no possible way in either incident that Hamilton could have made the pass: he was behind and did not have a valid line for the moves.
Close, but no.

Passing yes but a successful pass SHOULD mean it is possible for the other car to not crash.

Sucks, because I am a Hamilton fan, but there it is.

(I know your opinion may be different but if you can take a close look at the Massa incident in particular.)

ok then what happened to schumachers penalty for running into lewis at the start avoidable incident also what happened to algusaris penalty for driving over lewis causing red flag and then they say they want consistency in the penalties being issued i nearly died laughing at that one.
come on penalising someone for having a go but accidentaly bumping into someone is a joke everyone knows how hard it is to overtake at monaco and to penalise a driver for trying is a joke. fair enough if it ends in an accident or serious damage meaning that the lead car has to pit then yes give the penalty otherwise leave well alone
