Under the letter of the law, it was a fair decision if a little perverse.

Trulli went off track, Hamilton was therefore within his rights to overtake him and rightfully gained 3rd place because when a car is off the track it is not deemed to be "in the race" and may be overtaken.

The team's mistake was then to instruct him to let Trulli past - the racing regulations state that when the safety car is out a driver must not deliberately slow down. Trulli thought Hamilton had problems with his car and went past him - this is also allowed under the regulations.

There is nothing in the regulations about "giving a place back" which is what the radio transcript reveals the team told Hamilton to do.

It was McLaren's mistake and they are not appealing it.

But the reports imply that the disqualification is because LH spoke with forked tongue at the hearing or whatever...rather than simply a rule infringement.

He may well have done - the FIA will publish the transcripts of what he said in the hearing.

The rumour is that he told the stewards that he slowed down because he was occupied reading the safety car instructions on his steering-wheel display, and that he was not instructed by the team to let Trulli through.

Sounds odd to me - he knew that the radio transmission was on record, and as he got out of his car her told a reporter that he was told to let Trulli past......

Whatever, he and McLaren were in the wrong - there is nothing in the rules about "giving a place back". It was a cock-up whether he lied or not.

Update - the transcript of the radio conversation is on the FIA website:

http://www.fia.com/en-GB/mediacentre...anscript_2.pdf

It's not that conclusive - at the time that they said let him through Lewis had not said that he'd already passed him... They did try to contact the race steward at the time.

It's a case of poor communication and confusion - there is nothing malicious or sneaky there.
