    Who benefits?

    What a joke this season has become!!!

    We've got people for McLaren and we've got people for Ferrari and then there are the rest. Let's get back to what we're all here for...the racing! First and foremost we still have Stepneygate, an issue that I think thoroughly benefits McLaren. How can a team be found UNANIMOUSLY guilty by all 26 members of the FIA and then not be punished at all? We have Ron Dennis accusing Ferrari of cheating in Round 1 of the season just before Round 11. A little late don’t you think Mr. Dennis? As Kimi so eloquently stated "As for Mr. Dennis's letter about race one, I guess we would have been disqualified if that was true so I guess he was not right." As for what happened today with Alonso and Hamilton it was deemed that Alonso did nothing wrong (I believe that Mr. Lauda owes Fernando a public apology for his outburst before knowing the facts) by Mr. Dennis and the stewards but McLaren is found guilty of being prejudicial to the interests of the competition and to the interests of motor sport generally, therefore Alonso is penalized 5 grid places (by no fault of his own) and McLaren gets hit with no points for them in the Constructors Championship. WOOPDIE F&^KING DOO!!! McLaren being 27 points ahead of Ferrari at the moment will still win the Constuctors Championship by the end of the year and Hamilton the Drivers Championship most likely. Ferrari will have to finish in first and in second to even put a dent in McLaren’s lead. Even if they do finish in that order it still puts them 9 points behind. A tough act considering that Massa starts in 14th place on the grid. What happened today benefits Lewis Hamilton. Low and behold, with everything going on he is now on pole. If McLaren gets penalized as a team then it should be the TEAM (which consists of Alonso and Hamilton) that gets penalized which it did with the points and not just one member of the team with a grid placement penalty. I remember not so long ago that a German driver was penalized, not just 5 grid places for intentional blocking of ONE driver but to last place!

    I say we pull McLaren and Ferrari out of the competition and let the rest get on with it. I guarantee we won’t see any of this crap going on. It is because both teams have more money than they know what to do with and that they have 4 very good drivers that all of these war of words are even taking place. What would have happened had the two teams above been (no offense too both teams) Super Aguri and Spyker?

    My bet is on that Yamamoto can still win the championship!!!! :-)
