Thought there would be some news about this, does anyone know if the stewards are investigating? It looked like he blocked him pretty bad.

No-one seemed to notice apart from the TV director :confused:

Not even Rob Smedley.

I posted this already in the qualifying thread:

This goes the same route as Bahrain. First: if in doubt, blame the evil spaniard. Later: reality check followed by slow and half-assed retraction.

Watch it happen!

The 2nd replay showed it was Massa and it wasn't on the flying lap. So, unless there was indeed a different situation with Kimi there is nothing worth of discussion here.

"For sure I think I put together a very good lap," he added. "I couldn't put together a good lap in Q2. I was a bit in traffic but in Q3 I managed to warm up the tyres in the right way and I even passed Alonso on the out lap to get a good lap.



Why the TV producer choose to show that sequence, at that time, is a mystery. But then on the other hand,it seems like most F1 TV producers hate the sport.

Some people get nervous very easily ... if you had eyes you could see it was Massa and Alonso ... in their out laps ... not Raikkonen in a flying lap ...

... find a video where you can clearly see the color of the helmet ...

same as bahrein ... Alonso bashers should check the facts before posting shit ...



Massa

"For sure I think I put together a very good lap," he added. "I couldn't put together a good lap in Q2. I was a bit in traffic but in Q3 I managed to warm up the tyres in the right way and I even passed Alonso on the out lap to get a good lap.

I forgotten the screen graphics intelligentsia. Maybe it was two different occasions then. The speed difference was so big though that Alonso can not have been on a hot lap and if it really is Kimi I can not see how Alonso would escape penalty. We will know in due time.

I think the TV guys simply got it wrong though.

Unless they traded helmets that is Massa.

Massa talked about it in the PC, he said he overtook Alonso in his outlap to make sure he wasn't caught up in traffic. They also showed them talking about it in the weighting garage thing.

I guess this will go on for at least another 5 days before the last one is convinced... in the best of cases. :p

Kimis comments can put this to rest. He made a mistake in the last corner and lost time. He does not mention traffic, Alonso or dolphins.

Au contraire, it's just that that was the only on-track passing we'll see this weekend. :lol:
