I'm not too sure of some rules, but watching the qualifying yesterday: Vettel was in the top ten but Mr Brundle stated that he can start the race on any tyre he wants. I thought the top ten start the race on the tyres they have for Q3? I hope Lewis can now have the option to use whatever he wants. IMHO the punishment does not fit the crime, but the stewards have now set the pressident.

Agree that the team should have come clean - but unfortunately they have history of not doing this. Lewis is part of the team - so should be included in penalty.

Question to the technical bods - would Lewis have been able to tell that there was insufficient fuel in the car? Would it have been noticeable?

Whitmarsh when asked by Eddie Jordan after qualy what happened to Button "WE never got the balance right it was up to him and his engineers to find the stability needed." Right after how did then Hamilton managed to get pole "THOSE guys got it right."

Did anyone else understand what that meant?

@bobsville, correction - you tart the race on the tires you set your q3 time! So if you don't set a time in q3 like vettel did not then you can start the race on whatever tires you like. Hope this has answered your question.

"Should've been a race ban"!!!!!
seriously. grow up. I'm no major Hamilton fan but you haters really do take the biscuit with your "balanced" veiws haha
By my mind its not the 3rd offence as Canada can hardly have been an offence when at the time there was no regulation to cover it, that does not count as form it counts as the time the FIA spotted an exploitable opportunity for the teams an closed it.

Hamiltons pen was tough at worst, deserved at best. it was not an issue of his doing, but to be fair how many points did the team lose last year from his car that were not their doing??

Elijah, you are totally out of order on this one.
Having the least fuel in the car means the car is carrying less weight (now don't take me wrong, am sure he would have still got pole) but here we are talking about the intentions of breaking the rules.
Do you believe that if the stewards decided not to take any actions (like they did in Bahrain) he (Lulu) would have given back the pole he achieved with his teams breach of the regulations?
