It's impossible to NOT get punished these days...either what is done FIA punish. Does FIA think Mercedes intended to drive of with a loose wheel nut? I miss the days when it was about racing and not making FIA richer on unfortunate incidents. I think Mercedes got enough punishment when Michael retired!

ole. the fine was understandable. the cars are not meant to be released until the car is in a safe condition. that is to avoid the chances of a wheel falling of and resulting in a serious accident to the driver, or to another driver. would you prefer to see a crash and injury?

It maybe my way of thinking but how can you not do a wheel nut up on a car. Seriously!
I'm sure guy didn't forget. He had as much time as the others.
MS didnt look angry.
Suspect !!!

Ivor there's nothing to disagree with. i didnt quote any facts.

How can they be punished for something they knew nothing about, Still scratching my head.
