Ferrari found guilty

Massa Alonso Germany 2010

It was not to be for Felipe Massa

The Hockenheim race stewards clearly did not like what happened on lap 49 of 2010 German GP … Ferrari were found guilty of breaching Article 39.1 of the Sporting Regulation which bans the team orders in Formula One. They were also found guilty of bringing the sport into disrepute. The result of the race stays at the moment but Ferrari were fined $100,000. The case was also referred to the World Motor Sport Council for further consideration.

So, it looks like Ferrari blokes are the only ones convinced by the Ferrari story …

The German GP weekend started this morning with the spin fest on very wet Hockenheim track. Many drivers went off at some point of the FP1, the only one causing serious damage to his car was Lewis Hamilton who smashed the car into to tyre barriers.
