107SS2000 we all have our opinions which is why we discuss it on this forum.

What you elude to unfortunately is far to simplistic, the FIA is a major political animal and rarely will change a decision as it weakens people's perception of them.

I am starting to despair at F1 and the way that it's run, if you want to see some real action try MotoGP, now that appears to be a raw gloves off experience. F1 seems to be all full of B*llsh*t I am waiting soon for Hamilton and Rosberg to be given handbags at dawn (yawn).

You surely are not telling me that the stewards walk on water and are right every time, if so what happened to the McLaren fine vs the Renault fine a few years ago?

Why did they not suspect Piquet at Singapore before he sung.

No unfortunately as my name suggests there is gross manipulation going on with these handbag fights.

For the record I like Massa, however me thinks he protests too much and I still think it was a 50/50 accident.

There are pictures about that clearly show Perez did change his line, but, I do wonder if the collision would still have happened given the line Massa was on anyway...

I do agree that F1 is getting about as interesting as watching paint drying... Perhaps, it would be more interesting if the PU power was restricted to that of the unit with least power, at least that way there would be some form of racing... The better PU would still have a big advantage as it wouldn't be stressed as much during the race...

Should I say "I told you so"? If anyone had bothered to look at the frame by frame overhead view it would have been crystal clear that Perez deviated from his line very late into the path of Massa.

I still think Massa was a bit at fault too, he was too far back to claim the line, but what Perez is punished for is pretty clear too. He changed his line in the braking zone and they should all know quite well that that is just a big, undisputable no-no. The fact that he did it by NOT turning at a place where the track turns does not change that fact.
