@ Waluz I think Massa has more pressing problems than battling Hamilton. In case u didn't know he's in trouble. All he needs is another incident. He should be doing all he can to hold onto that seat of his. lol

As soon as they realised he didn't have enough fuel on board they could have aborted and brought him in. That may not have put them on pole, but at least it would not relegate him to the back of the field. They wanted to let him finish his flying lap despite knowing it would lead to a rule-breaching situation and for that reason I think the punishment is adequate.

Lewis might be defiant, but while Taipan's young nephew is doing work experience at McLaren it will be an uphill battle. Last race he was left rear wheel gunner and he was seen helping the guys with the refuelling for qualifying yesterday. Let's see where they have him for the race.

I reckon the Fia have this one absolutley wrong.

Of course the Driver and Team win & loose together But this situation is a bit differant.
The"Illegal" car is to do with the Team - they should have CS points or a monetary fine awarded (or LH should hav started in his quali two position as that fuel was checked.

This ruling should be revised before the race start as he used his tyres in accordance with challenging for Pole position.

Putting the Pole Postion car on the back of the grid is potentially dangerous, he obviously going catch up with half the grid on the 1st lap.

Why put the fastest car/driver behind the slowest ones? Note:HRT only just made the 107% ruling!

This is a technical infringement and the penalty is normally exclusion from the race. Being allowed to start at the back is actually a concession, perhaps acknowledging the driver's innocence.
