so Rob Huff is disqualified for a duff roll bar...

meanwhile, Stewards gave Stefano D'Aste and Franz Engstler a drop of ten positions on the grid of Estoril's Race 1 and a euro 1,000 fine, for playing at banger racing. That's fair.

but no penalties for t'other blokes who trashed fellow competitors' races :eek:

The 2nd race was beyond 'robust' racing - if you couldn't get past, push, nerf, shove... then put the guy in front into a half-spin. Even John Cleland (commentating for Eurosport) noticed - and he raced in the roughest/toughest days of the BTCC, when drivers were excluded for *not* having body damage.

If Stewards are going to be *so* strict on a roll bar infringement, isn't it time that they asked every car with a bent panel to explain themselves?

And don't get me started on throwing drivers to the back of the grid for not having the right balaclava on. Can they not get that kind of thing sorted before the racing gets underway? Petty officialdom at its worst.
