Re: Bourdais / Massa incident - Japan GP
Although I don't agree with either the penalty or the Ferrari favouritism coments from the conspiracy theorists, it's actually quite simple.
If you get spun around, it means you have been hit from behind and therefore were in front.
Hamilton vs Massa, Ham spins, Massa gets hit with penalty.
Massa vs Bourdais, Massa spins, Bordi gets the penalty.
The problem here is that they are getting so goddam petty that we no longer have the grey area known as 'racing incident'. All manouvres are being policed in extremis which is another way of saying that F1 is being babied!! I left the UK, amongst other reasons, because I was fed up with the nanny state it was turning into and F1 is heading in the same direction. It's going to ruin the sport if they keep this up...
