    Boycott the TV coverage...

    Hi Adam
    I appreciate that when the rules are broken there should be a punishment. However my gripe is that these punishments are not always consistant, especially where McLaren are concerned. Last year there were so many poor decisions by the race stewards that McLaren now feel on the back foot at every race. This incident is the direct result of this defensive attitude. I agree that Trulli shouldn't be punished for something he didn't do but feel that Lewis earned the 4th place fairly.

    • Oh, Lewis certainly did earn the fourth place fairly. Unfortunately he tried to earn third place unfairly, and that's where the problem lies.

      • Lewis actualy earned third place fairly where the confusion happened is when the team told Lewis that he had to yeild the place back to Trulli. Lewis questioned this again correctly however didn't protest much when told again to yeild. There was a pause and then the someone on the team realised the mistake and asked him to keep position however it was to late he had followed orders. Lewis then gave a correct account to an interview with the media which IMHO Lewis couldn't really show disgust at losing the third place position because of fear of repocussions. I then think that after the team's mistake was realised Someone and (I couldn't speculate who) decided they had third place legitimatly and they should get it back that is when the ill advised and hurried plan was forged to try and gain back the position. I could of coarse be totally wrong but that's my opinion.
