hamilton has now been awarded third because Trulli overtook him under safety car....

Marshalls are idiots - that S/C was out for 2 laps and they didnt work out that Trulli had jumped ahead of Hamilton. Hamilton missed out on being on podium.

Thumbs up Re: Virgin F1 !

For all those in doubt about anything (official) in F1, bookmark the official F1 site which has all the race details of every race, archives etc. Once there you can download for free the Live Timing and when the race is on you get times as they happen, lap chart, weather, and a live commentary. Fascinating to have live timing on at the same time as the race on the telly, especially when the computer is a bit in advance of Hobbsie, Matchett et al.

Speedtv also shows Moto GP and though a minimal biker myself I love to watch Valentino Rossi! Now he would be fun in F1, though I doubt his antics would be approved of by Bernie or Max!

Viva the Button!

Hamilton has been disqualified and Trulli given back third, seems he lied and got caught.

Read the full story on the F1 site, he never lied but the team and he neglected to provide all the info that would have helped the stewards to make a decision.
Not a good start for them in 2009, what a contrast with the underdogs start! And they say F1 is boring!

It has become boring. All these appeals and hearings after a race are pathetic. Vet the car before the race and make a decision prior to the drivers going on the podium because a week after the race just makes it Stupid Thick and Pathetic im going to shift to Nascar Racing failing that im going to race lego cars around the garden. Or get a life and start morris dancing.

Hamilton and McLaren were asked outright if they let Trulli by on purpose, they said no. Then when the radio tapes become available it turns out they did, that´s lying. Besides, this story is not going to end here, it looks that now they will go after him for conduct unbecoming or something along those lines.

Yes but the whole point is, Make a decision about the car before the Race (In The case of Team Braun) and prior to making a Podium Award decide finally who has won the race. It's not like enough officials are watching. This is just another case of the FIA being in Ferrari's pocket and they finished with no points, so as an objective they set out to make sure Mclaren ended with none, to keep the pegs level so to speak. Personally I would like to see it as a anything goes (Without Contact) kind of race. The FIA has past it's competence level and as a guided rule never let the French govern anything enjoyable. And as to it's claims of being non profit making my name is Lewis Hamilton, Fat Cats who can't piss in to the wind.

If any one can think of something sensible to do with fia-sucks.com PM me.

Ok, the FIA isn´t spotless, far from it, but they don´t take kindly to being lied to. No one can blame them for that, and I think it´s a bit early in the season to involve Ferrari. Anyway in a few hours, 7 hours from now, I´ll watch the first free practice and see what goes on a proper circuit.

They could get rid of ex Ferrari boss Luca Montezemolo and get someone knowledgeable and independent of any of the teams.....suggestions? I would back Jackie Stewart as honest enough to disassociate himself from any team connection.

Make a conspiracy theory out of these ingredients :

1) *alleged* Nazi loving senior leadership team

2) young non-Aryan , non-blonde haired , gifted superstar

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All characters in this possible future story are imaginary and bear no relation to any person living or dead.

1) *alleged* Nazi loving senior leader, allegedly owns Ferrari he didn't pay for, revealed as sleeper cell for Taliban plotting to build GP circuit in Afghanistan

2) young non-Aryan , non-blonde haired , gifted superstar, loses first title by 1 point to Ferrari, wins second by 1 point by a fluke, EU demands that all drivers belong to ethnic minorities in future, and wear flameproof Nomex hijabs.

3) billionaire control freak refuses haircut by willowy 7 foot Nascar driver and in revenge for alleged slight by leader, moves British GP round to Lydden Hill, charges non British teams VAT and customs taxes on each crossing of the UK border and changes technical regulations to favour Muslim teams. All circuits to have built in IEDs and Muslim cars to have IED warning devices fitted. All other cars to have sponsors logos written in Arabic. At pit stops all drivers to get out, prostrate themselves on mats and recite 10 verses from "Green Eggs and Ham".

Now that would not be boring, would it?
