How long will this crap take now? Surely they should have been able to give the penalties during the race already.

i think they might carry over the penalties. as 9 drivers under investigation too much to investigate
Report Help2 June 27, 2010 3:28 PM BST
their will be no penalty only fines...

I think when they look at the telemetry Hamilton clearly slowed (probably after hearing from team that it was coming out at that particular moment) to get a view of the safety car situation ....  if he hadn't he would have been through before the infringement occured and probably won the race ....

the other's with Delta time infringements should be penalised depending on % of infringement....

Nevermind, just found an update myself...



Four of the nine drivers under investigation in Valencia have been cleared of post-race penalties by FIA race stewards.

Nine drivers were under investigation following the race for travelling too quickly under Safety Car conditions, as opposed to following lap deltas displayed in cockpits which instruct competitors not to complete laps before a countdown timer has finished.

So far, Sébastien Buemi (8th), Vitaly Petrov (11th), Vitantonio Liuzzi (13th) and Nico Hülkenberg (DNF) have all received the ‘Not Guilty’ verdict.

Decisions are yet to be released on Jenson Button (3rd), Rubens Barrichello (4th), Robert Kubica (5th), Adrian Sutil (6th) and Pedro de la Rosa (10th).

Actually that info wasn't quite correct anyway...

The nine drivers under investigation in Valencia have been handed 5-second time penalties for driving too quickly under Safety Car conditions in the European Grand Prix. This affects six of the ten points scorers, including World Champion Jenson Button who finished third.

Since last year, a timer is displayed on the steering wheel deltas of all competitors at the moment the Safety Car in deployed, meaning no driver can cross the finish line before the timer – which varies in time remaining depending on the part of circuit which the car is at – reaches zero seconds.

The rule avoids drivers – as seen in the past – circulating quickly in order to make up time during Safety Car periods.

The following drivers (with original race finishing positions shown) receive 5-second penalties:

Jenson Button (3rd), Rubens Barrichello (4th), Robert Kubica (5th), Adrian Sutil (6th), Sébastien Buemi (8th), Pedro de la Rosa (10th), Vitaly Petrov (11th), Vitantonio Liuzzi (13th) and Nico Hülkenberg (DNF).

so this only should result in Alonso being classified 8th ahead of Buemi and Rosberg 10th?
Report montgomery brewster June 27, 2010 6:52 PM BST
so effectivly only buemi is penalised
