McLaren have ooficially appealed the Stewards decision to penalize Lewis Hamilton for his chicane-cutting move on Kimi Raikkonen in the 2008 Belgium GRand Prix at Spa Francorchamps.Â The Stewards felt that Lewis gained an advantage and McLaren do not.Â AS I am sure Autosport is exclusively revealing:
“We looked at all our data and also made it available to the FIA stewards,”
“It showed that, having lifted, Lewis was 6km/h slower than Kimi as they crossed the start/finish line.
“Having passed the lead back to Kimi, Lewis repositioned his car, moving across and behind Kimi to the right-hand line and then outbraked him into the hairpin.
“Based on this data, we have no option other than to register our intention to appeal.”
