    Default F1: Spa-Francorchamps

    This end of this race is insane!
    I'm getting goose bumps from this!

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Outstanding!! If that doesn't show how good Hamilton and Massa is then nothing will, I mean the man has such vision in that when he went for the first pass and saw Raikonnen was going ultra defensive he cleverly cut the track so as not to lose much time and then kept the pace just below Kimi and let him through as he should where he then passed him and kept the car on the track.

    Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa are the kings of F1 imo this season.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Okay, now that just pissed me off.

    First, the BMW mechanics perform the slowest repair ever (12 freaking seconds!), causing Kubica to lose 2 positions.

    Then Hamilton gives a spectacular show of dirty driving, bumping into Raikkonen's car and causing him to crash 2 laps before the end of the race.

    Then Heidfeld overtaking under the yellow flag and finishing third.

    In fact, the only driver on the podium who deserved it was Massa, and I hope Hamilton and Heidfeld do get penalties.

    Hamilton didn't bump Raikonnen at all, in fact I think the only touch was when Raikkonen touched Hamilton at the end of the lap when he passed him. Please me not another nige!

    In fact watching the replays they were close but not much contact.

    First off, Hamilton was well clear of Kimi before he span because he is a retard

    Second off, Heidfeld was overtaking on a part of the track that wasnt yellow

    I was actually shouting at the TV at those last 4 laps, best watch this Season IMO

    ORIGINAL DRIFTER

    Hamilton was forced wide by raikonnen's dirty manoeuvre. Hamilton's only option was to take the escape lane so he gave the place back and re-took it on the following corner. The dirt came only from Raikonnen! And lets be honest it was a pretty novice move at best.

    How is Hamiliton a retard?
    He span in the wet letting Raikonnen through. Raikonnen span straight after and let Hamilton back. Raikonnen kiss with the wall after all that, was his own doing because he was pushing to hard.

    I think Marc was meaning that towards Kimi ThirtyTwo. We've seen in the past Kimi isn't too hot in the wet so it wasn't a surprise to me when Hamilton closed him right down and passed him, what did surprise me is that Kimi lost it and put it into the wall.

    This has got to be the best final 2 laps of any F1 race in memory... Compared to a relatively dull race, the ending was pretty spectacular!

    As much of a Lewis fanboy as I am, I still can't help but feel sorry for Kimi. Losing it on the run-off area surprised me as much as anyone else. He really should have deserved that 2nd place...

    Ah well... Roll on Monza!

    Hamilton stripped of win. Well, couldn't have expected otherwise, F1 stands for Ferrari Won after all.

    Ferrari must have cried to the FIA cause Hamilton has been penalised 25 seconds putting him 3rd and giving Massa the win. What a joke!

    He cut the corner, because he had no other way to go! If you cut the corner, the rules say you must give the place back (obviously). He did, so what's the problem?


    I smell something involving Ferrari, some money in a suitcase, a quite park bench and a few F1 Stewards!
    Life is good. Simples. Cccchhhhh.

    Wow!, you have a great sense of smell!

    But i agree!, Ferrari and FIA are definitely exchanging something...

    Ah... I thought that the yellow flags were applying to the whole track, I suck at F1 rules . That must have been the smartest maneuvre in the history of F1!

    Timo Glock was penalized too, losing the 8th position to Mark Webber.

    Lewis Hamilton has had his Belgian Grand Prix victory overturned by the stewards, handing the win to title rival Felipe Massa, who finished second on the road.


    Hamilton was given a 25-second penalty for cutting the Bus Stop chicane during his wheel-to-wheel battle for the lead with Kimi Raikkonen during the closing laps.


    Although the McLaren driver appeared to lift off and was repassed by Raikkonen on the exit of the corner, the stewards ruled that he had gained an advantage by short-cutting the circuit.


    "The stewards, having received a report from the race director and having met with the drivers and team managers involved, have...determine a breach of the regulations has been committed by the competitor and impose the penalty referred to," said an FIA statement.


    Hamilton was deemed to have "cut the chicane and gained an advantage", thereby breaching Article 30.3(a) of the sporting regulations and Appendix L chapter 4 Article 2 (g) of the International Sporting Code.


    With 25 seconds added to his race time, Hamilton has dropped to third in the classification behind BMW Sauberís Nick Heidfeld.


    The decision brings about a six-point swing in Massa's favour in the championship standings, reducing Hamilton's lead from eight to two points.


    Raikkonen crashed out of the race on the penultimate lap and is now 19 points behind Hamilton with five rounds remaining.
    I'd love to hear a steward try to defend this decision ... how on earth does it gain him an advantage when he was passed was going to pass him on the corner anyway?
