McLaren bashing in Hungary

Strange things are going on in Formula 1.

First there is the spy case between McLaren en Ferrari and now there is the situation during the qualification in Hungary.

The outcome of the first case was as expected. There is no direct proof that McLaren is using Ferrari technology.

The second case is even more ridicules. The team is screwing up their qualifying by keeping Alonso in the pits so long that Hamilton couldn’t make his last run anymore. Result: The stewards penalize McLaren, they can run in this GP but cannot gain any World Championship points and Alonso is put back five places on the grid.

I get the feeling that somebody thought ‘let’s give them a heavy penalty, McLaren will object, the penalty will be reduced but at least we got the for the spy case with Ferrari’.
