It's going to be an interesting few days. However, if this were the case then race control should have noticed in due time and given him a drive thru penalty. This happened in lap 4 and they had all the time in the world to look into this during the race, which also is standard practice. But we've seen issues before, some drivers have a larger say in decisions. Let's wait and see.

FIA has announced they will not accept an appeal from Ferrari, yellow flag situation was just lifted. Ecclestone is with them so things will remain as they are and personally I'm good with that.

Hey we didn't pay any attention to this years F1 season then? Thoroughly enjoyed last weekend's race in Hungary! Nice action, good one on one battles, several impressive overtaking actions, Raikkonen proving to be a very good F1 driver still. And even Romain Grosjean appears to be able to get into traffic without running into others all the time so perhaps he's better than Eddie Irvine after all then lol.

Except when he ran into Button!

I thought he was unfairly penalised for the pass on Massa into turn 4, that was bloody brave!

Hamilton really seemed to find his mojo, I hope he can put together a championship charge, watching Vettel take titles is getting old now.

Next race is Spa :boogie

Great race always, on my favorite track! Will Raikkonen be able to do more stunting, like last year?
And let the best driver win, but Vettel needs some more serious competition. He will prolly get more of that with his new team mate next year!

I think Grosjean should not of been penalised for passing Massa. He could of stayed on the track for the pass but Massa would of hit him so he ran a bit wide.

However he should of got a penalty for hitting Button, didn't leave a cars width when returning to the racing line, big no-no.

Enjoyed the race though, especially Kimi rally driving the lotus E21 at the end, making Vettel think twice about trying to get past a four wheel drifting car.

Maria de Villota, the talented lady that crashed badly while testing for Marussia F1 last year and lost an eye as a result of the crash, was found dead in her hotel room in Sevilla (Spain) this morning. She died at the age of 33, said to be of natural causes but I expect we will hear more on this topic later today. RIP Maria.

Natural causes on age 33, after losing an eye en with that a career in racing...As it turned out, she died because of neurological issues, from the crash. Must have been something like braindamage...

RIP Maria.

Just saw a piece about Michael Schumacher. He had a ski-accident and is in a coma.

He hasn't been my favorite driver historically, but the world of F1 would be a much poorer place without him. Wishing him a speedy and total recovery!

I stopped watching F1 after the death of the king in 1994 but i have to say MS was the greatest driver of my lifetime. Hope he makes a full recovery.
