When has Lewis Hamilton ever received a penalty anyone could
describe as "iffy"?
SPA 2008 for starters, they changed the rules to make that one stick!
Oops sorry that decision was not "Iffy" it was blatantly wrong.
Agreed. I was so disgusted with that decision that I gave up watching
F1 for the rest of the season.
The most disgusting steward's decision in the history of F1 if not
motor sport. Should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
The penalty was too large, I agree, but he did cut the chicane and
gained an advantage, right?
I realise you enjoy arguing an anti Hamilton position either just for the
pleasure of it or as a troll wind-up. So I should know better than to
engage you on it and I'm certainly not going to get embroiled in a large
and pointless argument.
Lewis was closing on Kimi very rapidly and clearly mush faster at that
point in the race and before the attack Lewis was right up Kimi's exhaust
Lewis challenged Kimi into the chicane and got a nose ahead.
As they slowed for the chicane Kimi got back ahead because he had the
inside line and lewis had to slow more as he was on the outside and
probably suspected that Kimi would run him off the road which he did.
Lewis had the choice of going off track or having an accident. He went off
track and cut the chicane, forced by Kimi.
I agree that Lewis should have guessed Kimi would leave him no room and
not attacked when he did.
Having therefore gained an advantage certainly of position and just
possibly of speed, Lewis slowed down and allowed Kimi to pass him.
Lewis dropping behind Kimi *must* mean that at that point Lewis was going
slower than Kimi. Any possible speed advantage gone.
Lewis went behind Kimi and attacked him on the other side, therefore his
track position advantage also gone.
Had Lewis not attacked into the chicane but just tucked up behind Kimi and
followed him through, he would have been better off on the chicane exit as
he would never have needed to drop below Kimi's speed.
It is therefore profoundly clear that lewis gained no overall advantage
and was punished by biased stewards who where a disgrace.
Obviously, you will not agree and will argue some nonsense against the
facts. I'm sure no one here will be able to get you to concede on this or
any other Lewis hate missions.
