Even the accompanying photo shows the gap, and Simoncelli inches away from dragging knee, further displaying he is in the lead and committed to the turn, while Pedrosa has yet to even settle on the foot pegs to initiate the appropriate lean into the corner...

What the situation requires is a little CSI forensics...

Hamilton referenced Ali G ( a comedy act) in his comment to a BBC reporter, he also said 'maybe' and not 'because'. Maybe is a proposition, not a statement.

Hamilton can say what he wants to a BBC reporter in reference to a popular British comedy programme, he wasn't even talking to, or about the stewards but a woman with a microphone.

Meanwhile, away from the pathetic politics of F1 real racing happens in MotoGP.

The best sport on earth.

The race direction should accept the reality that during Le Mans race, Simoncelli riding in the most appropriate ways for the whole race session and even follow the the order to take the punishment without any other incident.

That "thing" that knock his rear wheel was way too aggressive compare to Simoncelli's riding.

I recalled the similar incident happened in Eastern Creek in 1995 where Criville knock Doohan rear wheel the same way like Pedrosa did and handed a gift winning to the rookie Capirossi. Should Doohan be punished for the incident?

Even on an open road, who hit from behind always at fault and should take the blame for dangerous driving acts.
