McLaren appeal penalty at Spa Francorchamps

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.  The Stewards felt that Lewis gained an advantage and McLaren do not.  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.”
