I could see the logic behind the Magny Cours penalty, but this seems a little far fetched.

I couldn't agree more with the above statement. I believed F1 was finally about the racing again where the best driver and team would win the championship, but alas, that's not possible. McLaren were to be within 1pt of Ferrari, and Hamilton would have - deservedly - been 8pts ahead in the drivers race.

F1 is going down the shitters, it's a sad reality.

I would if i had the bloody time I'd absolutely love to go. Sadly it's too far away and I won't be able to get there, let alone set apart a full day.

The diesel regulations are based on the FIA suggestions, so they are to blame really. Again!

If Massa "cut a chicane", the stewards would have ignored it.

It was either, cut the chicane or crash. Hamilton did what was logic

If he had crashed into Raikkonen, he would've either been disqualified or given a penalty (time or grid for next race).

but hot headed. If he had waited a couple of more turns he would have easily passed him, given the time he had been gaining on the lap before.

When I first heard about the possible punishment to Hamilton, I thought it was unnecessary, he cut the chikane but let Räikkönen past again on the straight. Now that I looked the replay over and over again, I agree with the stewards and Räikkönen that Hamilton did gain from cutting the track. Sure Kimi got past him but just enough to say he was past, and it definately affected his driving line throughout the straight.

That said, 25 seconds still sounds a bit much.

Shame about Räikkönen's dnf though, he could have taken it very easy and finished second - first after Hamilton's penalty. Now, this may have turned a very important race concerning the rest of his career.

From memory of the race, I felt Hamilton did the right thing in giving the position back (mostly) and then passing Kimi again a corner or two later. Why the penalty is even imposed if Kimi DNF's though? I don't get it.
