Hamilton stripped of Spa victory

Lewis Hamilton, who was apparently “Singing’ in the Rain...” After taking a dramatic late race victory over the Original Iceman, a.k.a. Kimi Raikkonen, has subsequently been handed a 25 second time penalty for overtaking Raikkonen in the chicane, thus gifting the win to second place Felipe Massa, moving surprise third place Nick Heidfeld into second and dropping Hamilton to third!

Toyota’s Timo Glock was also docked 25 seconds for passing under a local yellow flag and drops from the final points scoring position of eighth to ninth, with Mark Webber being given the single point for eighth place.

Yet, McLaren has appealed the FIA Steward’s ruling and thus we’ll wait with baited breath to see if MAD MAX (Mosley) instructs his minions to cut his good friend the Ronster, a.k.a. Ron Dennis a break? As the revised results would see an eight point swing in both the Driver’s and Constructor’s titles...
