"But to do it in the 1st race back in the US after what happened in indy in 05 ?? and risk alienating US fans again ?? That is something ONLY Ferrari would do." Unless my memory is totally failing, I think you will find it was Michelin who informed the teams that their tyres were dangerous. The Michelin shod teams withdrew. Ferrari were running Bridgestones... It seems that in Sao Paulo that the video evidence was unclear (until further angles were revealed) and if a pass had been done under yellows, the transgressor should be penalised - even if that changes the championship outcome as it would have involved 'cheating'. In the same vein, this is why Lance Armstrong is now considered to have never won the Tour de France. He was found out after the event and in his case, was proved to be cheating (big time!) - it wasn't just the losing teams whinging.
