    Default Hamilton's post-race(Monaco) interview with the BBC

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/form...e/13588664.stm
    "It's an absolute frickin' joke," he said. "I've been to see the stewards five times out of six this season."

    Hamilton added: "Massa held me up in qualifying, I got the penalty. He turned in to me [during the race], I got the penalty. These drivers are ridiculous. It's stupid."


    Does he deserve these penalties for trying to overtake? Is he being too reckless with these overtaking manoeuvres?

    TBH the "overtake" attempt on Massa in race was stupid. Left hand hairpin and he tried to go down the inside? I actually think Monaco is a waste of space for an F1 race these days. Too small, too tight, very little room for honest overtaking and hence Hamilton's attempt. The accident with 10 laps to go ruined a good race too, Vettel got lucky again, any other circuit and he'd have been left for dead many many laps earlier.

    i've watched it back a few times now and i still think massa left the door open , schuy got through a smaller gap when he overtook rosberg , massa knew if he turned in on lewis that lewis would get the blame for it and if that wasnt the case how did massa manage to hit webber ? cos he wernt looking where he was going perhaps ?

    I'm a big McLaren fan but with comments like that (Asked why that was the case, he said apparently in jest: "Maybe it's because I'm black. That's what Ali G says.") he's asking for trouble.

    Yes that comment was either stupidly unprofessional or childish, wasnt it. Sure hes gonna watch that over a cringe into a corner.

    [QUOTE=Hideous;1541896Does he deserve these penalties for trying to overtake? Is he being too reckless with these overtaking manoeuvres?[/QUOTE]
    Yes, the penalty is deserved, as that is what the rules currently state, the entire front wheels (on each car parallel to each other) MUST be passed to consider a safe overtake
    The car which has then been overtaken MUST then yield
    If the car being overtaken has NOT been passed, then it does not have to yield

    However, at Monaco there are locations where this is not practical

    As above, Massa ended up offline going into the tunnel, the outcome was inevitable with full power and lack of grip due to the dirt (and drivers should now be aware of this being so far into the season)

    There's two incidents. The Massa one was NEVER on. you can't expect the car your about a quarter of the way up on his inside NOT to turn in to a corner they're at.

    The accident with Pastor Maldonado on lap 73 was a bit more close cut, but again he could see the other car more than they could see him.

    First one he may get a slapped wrist, the second was a racing incident. IMO.

    As for the "joke" in his interview, I can't see the FIA seeing the funny side.

    i still say massa left the door open , he took a much wider line than the previous laps , i think it would be a mistake if the FIA make a big deal out of his joke
