"His approach in that first corner was slightly arrogant to other drivers" is what JS is quoted as saying on the second page of this story. The headline by the crash team is just aimed at stirring things up once again.

So, step forward all the Hamilton haters and get it off your chest, cos obviously you would all do so much better in that situation wouldnt you?

So Lewis is the only person to have done this. Whilst I agree it was a no brain from a viewers point, it was still a racing incident, which has occurred many times before. Does this now mean we will have a clarification of the rules yet again. "there must be no overtaking at the 1st corner", perhaps we should adopt the American approach and have a rolling start: where will we end up, following the pace car for the whole race. Get real, lets get back to racing, before the drivers need to have another on board PC to check that they can make their next move!!!!

It was slightly arrogant to penalise Hamilton when it was his team mate that forced Raikkonen to take avoiding action and leave the track.
It was very arrogant of Massa to cut a corner on the grass and then deliberately turn in to Hamilton.
Go to Youtube watch the Videos, FIA and Ferrari are killing racing whilst telling us they want more overtaking!
Hamilton and Heikki put in classic overtaking moves at the start. The FIAsco and their stewards are the biggest threat to racing and F1.

at the end of the day he is not the first driver to do a move like that in F1 at the start of a race and he certainly won't be the last plus remember this! is only his second year in F1 and fighting for the championship 2 years in a row is excellent for any driver let alone for someone in only his second year of F1 you can only imagine the pressure he is under i just hope he pulls it off as it will be deserved more than massa

F1init - Why would Massa , who is behind on points , deliberately drive into Hamilton?
It is a ridiculous statement to make, if Massa was leading the championship i would understand that comment as he would have nothing to lose by doing so.
But as he is trailing it could have taken him out of the race ending any chance of the title.

Yet another "OLD"driver wheeling him self out and giving old peoples advice!I am 62 and of corse you see stuff differently "But" lewis is a youngster, life to youngsters is "I can do this" "Oh bugger no I can't" It's what makes them exciting,frustrating,annoying to watch,anyone remember Mansell round the out side on the dirty side of the parebolica? It worked so he was a genius,if it hadn't total idiot!If it had worked for lewis and heki "what brilliant driveing etc etc"But it was an "Oh bugger" and he addmited it,I would rather that than "Oh after you rubish" the REAL truth is if it were not for Lewis and the like F1 would be even more mind numbingly boreing than the FIA are makeing it :)

Any racing driver knows he gets a fair chance of tipping another car around if he taps a back corner of the car especially when the car is cornering.
It's a classic move if you want to make another car spin.
Massa is in a Ferrari and knows he is unlikely to be penalised and he stopped Hamilton scoring and even had his points score boosted by the stewards.
You only have to watch the video and see the celebration in the Ferrari garage to know what they are on.
Ferrari and FIAsco are the F1 cheats again and again :)
