Adequate. He's been involved in 7 first lap crashes this year out of the 12 races.

Could have been added to the original thread, but I voted option 2. Grosjean's punishment is justifiable, but it's a joke that the FIA have seemingly only acted once Alonso was caught up in the antics of these drivers.

At first it seems like a hard penalty but because this was not the first such incident...

However I think that PM has not been punished nearly as hard - apparently RG taking out the title contenders was a factor in the decision.

I think the OP can edit the thread to add a poll, not sure, ah well it doesn't really matter. We have 200 threads about Alonso/Hamilton and the endless 'scorecard' threads and such

Maybe you haven´t noticed, but Hamilton also retired, and Perez. So we are not talking about a crash between Romain and Alonso, but something that looked like bowling to me, and it´s not the first time....

Inadequate ( should've been given a gird drop )

Makes no sense, that's a lesser penalty.

"Inadequate (should have been given a bigger ban)" would be better.

Yes, but Hamilton and Perez have been taken out before and nothing like this happened. It seems only when a certain red car gets taken out, then the FIA step up. Which makes their 'World Championship' claim even more ridiculous.

I'm not saying Grosjean doesn't deserve a race ban, I'm just questioning why the FIA have only decided to act now.

:up:

Adequate. And Maldonado has to be on the watch-out, too. His fines and reprimands are piling up to become a big one soon, if he does not change his ways.

If Grosjean got a race ban, then Hamilton and Maldanado should have had one by now as well. (Not for Spa, but for previous incidents).

And Alonso will get 25 points out of it or what?

There is one option missing: It's all Ferrari fault.

Wow, i just saw that too, and I thought it had been 4 .
Anyway it amazes me how some people here claimed that the Lotus drivers were not the reason why the
Team wasn't doing any better.
It seem like all the bad energy is being thrown at Maldo and Massa..

This ban is actually bad for Alonso, because Grosjean is out of WDC hunt and he could take some points away form others.

Maldonado has been penalized by the FIA for 12 separate incidents in 12 races.

So, the severity of the penalties tell us what has been a bigger offence.
