I'd be surprised if the decision was upheld if McLaren are appealing.
The FIA can't ignore the number of people backing Hamilton, plus the fact that he didn't do a lot wrong ;)

McLaren have appealed.

I really hope that Hamilton gets awarded his 1st place back. I for one will probably not bother watching F1 again if he doesn't, this season has been completely anti-mclaren from the start :x

I used to love formula 1. Never missed a race. It's just got gradually more and more boring, that now I'd rather watch two slugs making out for entertainment.

To be fair, i do agree with you. I never missed a race a few years ago, but it did start getting boring and i did lose interest. This season though, it's been an awful lot better and it's sucked me straight back in again. The drivers' championship is much closer than in previous years, and it no longer looks like every racr has a clear winner from the word 'go'.

Id say F1 has lost its way since Michaels dominance, but its on the Up for sure. And next year they are going backl to slicks, no special Aero parts so it'll less earodynamic grip and more mechanical grip. This means cars will be able to follow more closely and will mean more overtaking.

It losts its way when they banned turbos and overtaking disappeared from the sport.

Anyone remember Nigel Mansell over taking people like crazy in 86 or 88 or whenever it was, and then having a blow out? That sort of drama is long gone. Now the sport thrives on how many seconds lost in the pit lane.... :bored:

Yeah 86 in Adelaide. Its the aerodynamics , not the lack of a turbo, You need more mechanical grip and less aerodynamic grip, then problem solved

Id also say the 1991 season was the greatest in history, and the whole year was run without a single turbo in sight
