Teams should be given sporting penalties over financial penaltys, like drive throughs, grid penalties, docked points etc. In this case there should have been drive through penalties at least. Teams will take finacial penlties anyday.

This is great news for the teams, because the positions they can hold on the track due to unsafe releases are worth far more to them than the measly financial penalties handed out by the stewards.

What a joke. The penalty for an unsafe release MUST be a drive through as soon after the incident as possible. Very weak adjudicating by the stewards on this occasion.

Di Resta's release should have just being a drive through, no question about it. I think the stewards were a bit drunk, it was an unsafe release, therefore he gets a drive through, simple. Webber's incident was a bit harder to judge during the race, so a post race fine for that is acceptable.
