Hamilton stripped of 1st place.

Just read this in today newspaper. Seem he over took the Ferrari by taking a detour over the grass, I saw the race and in my opinion he won it fair and square. The fact that Kimi spun out and didn't finish should have mean any possible issues about his over taking were now an non-issue as the now second place man was well behind.

As usual there is double standards in F1, there is the rules for Ferrari and then there is the rules for everyone else.

It's no longer a sport in my opinion.

DAMN IT, this sucks. OMG, He totally deserved that WIN! I hate Ferrari and their Whiny antics. First it was the whole spy drama last season and now this????

I hope he still wins the championship this year!

Did the constructor's points get deducted too?

Agree 100%

This is total BS IMHO......I watched the race and saw the incident. I and the commentators all agreed that he did it all by the book.

Total BS that they penalized him...Ferrari has them in their pockets, no doubt.

Although I was routing for Lewis, I don't care who it was, the penalty was uncalled for and is politics at its best.

It was a clean pass as both cars went off the course! In those conditions it's hard to keep control as Raikkonen went off course trying to catch Hamilton that's why he crashed. I bet I Raikkonen made that pass stick and not lost control the FIA would not have penalized him.

Still does not make sense to me...

Hamilton passes Raik illegally.

He let Raik PASS HIM BACK UP. Then the FIA says Hamilton carried too much momentum??? WTF? If Hamilton let Raik PASS HIM, HTF did he have momentum?

Total BS.

He did have a good drive at Monza though, all things considered. Too bad it did not rain jsut a bit more at the end of the race though. His one stop strategy may have won him the race if he did not have to pit for intermediates. Oh well. Still in the championship lead by 1 point over Massa! lol

+ 1000!! Too bad I canít express my dissatisfaction to these so called stewards, so frustrating to see them pick Ferrariís competition apart.
