PF1 found the Ark…well, sort of

8

The PF1 crowd are rumbling, explaining, dredging historic acts of straight-lining chicanes and displaying an angst with the Lewis drive-through penalty that can be almost classified as choleric.So much so that they have now found a conspiracy to heap on the already robust machinations of the Anti-McLaren consortium.

It seems the PF1’s are suggesting that a Max Mosley sycophant was part of the penalty decision-making process that saw Lewis Hamilton hammered with a drive-through penalty for straight-lining a chicane in order to pass Sebastian Vettel.  It seems this person is CEO of a company that had boasted on their web page that Ferrari was a client of theirs and has recently taken the claim off the web site further fueling the conspiracy.  Give it a week and this guy will have the Lost Ark of the Covenant, Holy Grail and black & White photos of the Egyptians building the pyramids.

While no rules are perfectly applied and perfect justice never truly sought; the last time I checked, straight-lining a chicane while in the process of passing someone is not allowed.  If it is a better application of the FIA rules we are all looking for; then a FIA sanctioned team of stewards needs to attend each race and mete our the rules with non biased glee.  On second thought, that may not give the PF1’s anything to talk about so best not do that just yet.  Let’s at least wait until the folks over there locate the Ark, I would like to see some faces melt.

Fer goodness sakes, someone just hand a Football World Cup to England right now! I’m getting tired of the insecurities spilling over into sports I enjoy.

Sidepodcast spotted that five months ago. Pretty poor of Planet-F1 not to give them the credit for it:

Besides which, Hamilton deserved his penalty, he only got past Vettel because he went too fast into the corner and cut it. All he had to do was give the place back and he wouldn’t have been penalised.

If the FIA stewards are inconsistent, it’s because they’re inept rather than partisan. Look at the daft penalties they gave to Montoya at Indianapolis in 2003, or Alonso at Monza in 2006.

and as for penalties – well don’t get me started… The FIA can do all it likes… if only Brits could learn to take spot kicks.

LOL. That being said; it seems to me that the Brit’s have a far better record in football(soccer) than we do. :)

A tedious relativist like myself would point out that the US has a fair few sports where it can kick the rest of the world into touch – to coin a soccer phrase.

Furthermore (just like cricket, rugby, hockey and goodness knows what else) we invented the game – only to suck at it… It’s soooo sad. Please accept our press’ neuroses as almost understandable/justifiable.
The nation has fallen far in many repsects, and most people still can’t deal with it.
