...The five judges ruled that the appeal was inadmissible and so Hamilton's four-point deduction stands..


I wonder if the 5 judges drove home in new Ferrari's that evening think

Its a stupid decision, on what became a stupid race.

Having been there earlier this year with a British Formula Ford team, that kerb on the chicane (From both Linton and Chris' views) is a stupid one, easy to damage the car on. Hamilton Locked up, got squeezed out, so he avoided the kerb, to prevent damage/spinning, amazingly kept his speed up, and whooped Kimi next corner. If he hadnt have tried to keep up, would he have still been penalised? No! and I can guarantee that the Judges who decided against him, have probably never even raced a car before, so therefore, why are they in that job???

Its all politics...and its damaging Motorsport Considerably.

yea ok, he wasnt the only steward that felt he should be penalized but im sure he's not the only shite one out there - i think his appeal was lost before it was even started. how would it look if, in such a high profile sport, the stewards couldnt do the job competently lol

u're right, it is wrecking the sport - sometimes i wonder y i bother watching it... always in the back of ur mind of there's been any off the track fixing etc - irritates me

What a load of Bollox. .

I fail to see how it failed.

I hope he wins the championship and the stewards can shove it
up where the sun don't shine.

But last year he done a great job of throwing it all away.

Was it him though?

That "Gearbox Problem" that lasted Just long enough on the first lap to allow Raikkonen to pull away seems ridiculously fishy to me. Once again, I think it was something to do with Politics, maybe Mclaren got a HUGE payoff, to stop Hamilton winning in his first season.

Wouldnt you be a bit unhappy, if an absolute Rookie, won the most Prestigious Motor Racing Championship in the world in their first go??
