Justice served

First time this year we watched a Formula One race, well the last eight laps of it anyway. Glad that Lewis Hamilton lost. Would not be able to stand the gloating by the British press if he had won especially when his team was found to have cheated. Even if he had no knowledge of it, he still benefited from it directly. The media will as usual over-analysis the recent sporting failures in tomorrow's papers.

Now if only FIA and Mosley do the sensible thing and strip him and Alonso of their winnings and points...

In other news, holiday plan to Switzerland cancelled. F*** 'em.

condemning a driver because of the press of his country? brilliant idea.

No, that is just the bonus outcome. But condemning someone for cheating, or benefiting from cheating - then yes, it should be done.

In other sports these two would have been thrown out.

It works both way. The way the Spanish press treats Hamilton is disgusting as well but I am glad neither won, especially an English!

The British press has never celebrated anything except first hence two defeats in two days is like rubbing salt in their wound.

Today's morning papers contains no congratulations to either South Africa and Kimi Raikkonen. Instead what we got are the typical double standard moaning and excuses.

Hamilton had an unfair advantage as his team was found cheating. From the moment the scandal was revealed the team should have been thrown out of the sport and banned for a few years, as is normal for doping offences in other sports.

And this coming from a Mclaren fan!

The team as a whole guilty as charged. Looks like all the Mclaren and Hamilton fans who blamed the FIA who should be embarrassed as well. And I bet Hamilton knew more than he is saying.
