Take it with a pinch of salt, he's not the first and won't be the last to flip the middle finger so don't expect any reprisals from the FIA. I can't remember a time when a driver has been punished for that.

mick. i am still here, but i dont understand your comment. i never put him up with fangio, as i have always claimed different times, different cars, different people.
of course hes human, and i can see a reason why he would continue. he was running eleventh and should a car drop out at the end, such as maldonado, at oz, he stood a chance to gain a point. i dont agree that horner should have tried to get him in, just to get a free gearbox change.
seb is not the first driver to ignore pit orders, and he wont be the last.

I was quite annoyed by his comment and believe it was one word away from bigotry. Many a footballer got a multi-match ban for less. And as for the "gesture" in the cockpit, he would do well to remember that as he participates in an international sport, some countries regard that worse than others.
An Australian footballer (Joel Griffiths)was banned for seven matches by the Chinese soccer association for giving the "finger".
Now... which GP is next?
