Stop Press - FIA stewards impose 25 second penalty on Lewis Hamilton's practice times for the Chinese Grand Prix, demoting him to last place. The FIA statement reads, “Lewis Hamilton has been found guilty of not driving a red car with a prancing horse on the front during the practice sessions for the Chinese Grand Prix. The stewards did not appreciate the significance of the this fact until after the practice sessions, by which time it was too late to impose a drive through penalty. This post-session penalty is obviously not susceptible to appeal under FIA rules. The FIA wishes to take this opportunity to re-assert its commitment to common-sense decisions in Formula One.” Ends.

Ferrarifan – I'm ready and waiting to consider the evidence that this is actually such a childish comment. I think your problem is that you won't find such evidence.

Bourdais penalty = FIA bias. Case proven once again!

Scoop what makes you think that you are not childish, the fact that you are a Hamilton lover? You guys (ladies?) you should stop with your silly jokes about FIA/Ferrari bias. You are so biased yourselves you are unable to see the truth

On the contrary fair Hamilton, the evidence points indisputably to FIA Ferrari bias, Call me silly and childish all you want (you'll note that I haven't resorted to personal insults) but the Bourdais penalty puts the issue beyond doubt. Find me an incident this year that went the other way?

@scoop - I suspect your comment was "tongue-in-cheek" - but there is more than a grain of truth there - and when you consider that the Stewards went against Whiting's directive that Bourdais was the innocent party, and that they are "advised" by one Alan Donnelly - MM's representative - who also happens to have Ferrari as one of his (Donnelly's) clients, then we can be forgiven for wondering about impartiality.
And as for the other posters - well their "names" say it all. If you're serious - register.
