Any word on this one?

"Alan Donnelly has asked to have a chat with Sebastian to go through the rationale behind their penalty,"

Sort of like being asked to come over for tea by the Grand Inquisitor - not a comfortable place to be

Seems like all penalties and decisions are open for review. I think we should go back to the SPA 2008 one and while we are at it the Bennatton fuel tank issue from 1994. Poor decisions there so they need to be reviewed.

I think he meant BAR in 2005 anyway.

It never reflects well on a governing body when a penalized driver says the penalty is unfair. Maybe the FIA just want to explain it to him so that he wont go around giving out about it anymore and just accept it instead.

In reality though, considering all that has happened lately, I guess it could be absolutely anything

Thanks meant 1994

Where they had modified their fuel filler - and had a huge fire as a result

They are probably going to say he has to do the next GP in a Reliant Robin as he is so keen on driving vehicles with 3 wheels. You think I'm joking, this is the FIA we are talking about. :lol:

I heard Fangio and Moss are to be called into the office soon to discuss the result of a British Grand Prix, if anyone fails to turn up they will be banned from future competition.

I see one bookmaker has just slashed Vettels odds from 26.00 to 11.00. Have they heard something? Penalty revoked?

Not to talk about a secret report that Clark's engine was deliberately filled with too little fuel at Monza 1967 :lol: It appears that Denny Hulme was the offender, commanded by Jack Brabham. If either of them fail to turn up at a secret assembly in Nairobi, Kenya tomorrow, they'll be stripped of the 1967 title, and Jim Clark will posthumouosly be rewarded with the 1967 crown :rotfl:

Yet another lame penalty. Vettel did nothing wrong even though he blames himself. The video shows he was fine, Kubica on the other has to be kicking himself for not passing on a straight...at the rate he was going he could have overtaken JB.

At least he hasn't got to see Max, it can't be nice sitting in a car all weekend with a freshly smacked arse.
