They also said they were checking with Charlie Whiting, now if that is correct then I am struggling to see how Lewis and McLaren got disqualified.

This is FIA shitting of McLaren and Hamilton all over around.
Oh, so the FIA forced McLaren to give different information in the Stewards hearing an hour after the race?

McLaren bald-faced lied to the FIA. They need to take their lumps.

McLaren ... it's british for Integrity
