The FIA obviously had a problem with it else they wouldn't have given that drive thru.......only issue was the FIA took a small nap before making up their minds & that's what the crib is all about.

^^ What Hamilton did was a black flag offence! He has been black flagged in GP2 for the same offence in 2005 while he was leading the race!

Its as simple as setting a bad example for other drivers and also a threat to the safety of the marshalls who were clearing the debris of Webber's car & to Hamilton himself who could have done what Alonso did back in 2004 Brazil.

Also imagine a whole lot of cars overtaking the SC and working their cars on track better prepared for the drive through penalty. It wouldnt look all that nice, does it?

St.Hamilton's fans can watch this and decide for themselves .

If he was going to overtake the SC,why the heck did he slow down drastically.Had he just went on,both Lewis and Alonso would have gone past the SC at this stage.

Its as if he wanted to do a,who crosses the line first, photo finish with SC,similar to what Schumi had with Barrichello at 2002 US GP.

This makes it even more curious to know what exactly was the communication between Lewis and the Mclaren pit wall.
