    JP GP Act II: It's now Hamilton's fault?!

    Apparently, Sebastian Vettel said he plowed into Mark Webber because he was watching Hamilton, who was trying to keep his car warm by slamming brakes and accelerating in bursts as they all followed the safety car. Webber is blaming Hamilton also, and there's a video on.. YouTube (yes, a private video on an internet site!) that may have made FIA look into suspending Hamilton from this Sunday's GP or taking away his points from JP. Huh?! What?!

    In other words, if Alonso or Raikkonen cannot figure out how to win the world driving championship, FIA will have to figure it out for them. I don't get any of this. If it's true, it's ludicrous. It's too silly to seem real though. Maybe a hoax?

    I doubt they'll do anything Hamilton brings to much publicity (money) to F1 for them to keep him from winning.

    Peter Windsor was saying that Hamilton's father/manager sees a penalty and/or disqualification as a done deal and they are trying to go on as well as possible with the GP at hand. All this was early this AM, US PST. Maybe now that everyone's slept on it in both the UK and CN things will cheer up.

    Jackie Stewart was on TV saying he can't follow the reasoning either.

    I just looked on the F1 site and it said this

    No penalty for Hamilton over Japanese Grand Prix
    And Vettel has China grid penalty annulled

    Formula One stewards have chosen not to penalise McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton after an enquiry into his driving behind the safety car in last weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix.

    The investigation followed suggestions that erratic driving by Hamilton had been responsible for Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Vettel crashing into the rear of Mark Webber’s Red Bull. Webber and Vettel were running second and third behind Hamilton at the time and both were eliminated in the incident.

    Vettel was initially blamed for the shunt and was given a ten-place grid penalty for this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix as a result. However, after hearing evidence from all three drivers, and in light of the unusually severe weather conditions at the time of the accident, the stewards decided that sanctions were not appropriate and reduced Vettel's punishment to a reprimand.

    Friday's decision means Hamilton could wrap up the 2007 drivers’ title in China on Sunday.

    That's good news. Thanks for the info! Finally some sanity. I felt bad for Vettel's penalty too, and I felt the worst for Webber.
