    Funny you should mention that as before the contact with Vettel after turn one, Kimi made contact with Hamilton in much the same way as Webber had with Ruebens the race before. Nothing was said about this whatsoever despite in this case there being another car (Vettel's I think) outside of Hamilton. If Webber's move was worthy of investigation and penalty surely this was at least worthy of investigation. Instead they chose to investigate what was an actual racing incident and was clearly that.

    I'm not going as far as to say there is outright favouritism to Ferrari but becauuse of the way races are stewarded by local stewards there is no consistency. Clearly Ferrari are cherished by racing fans around the world and like a favourite child they get less harsh treatment than the others.

    Perhaps they should invest @ 12.000,00 in making the Ferrari a little quicker ... :confused2:

    These things happen, one thing investigated, could be brushed aside next week. Perhaps it was the Ferrari bias, maybe not. I can't find any videos on the Hungary start so I can't comment on it.

    Yes, the stewards are inconsistant, and that usually works out in Ferrari's favour. So often it's suspisious.

    Looked at the video. It looked pretty similar alright. And after T1, with the Vettel/Kimi incident, it looked as if Kimi lost the rear.

    Finally Badoer has the chance to drive a Ferrari in a race, after so many years. I think he deserves it, after Ferrari has even preferred to sign Mika Salo to substitute Schumacher.

    Seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher has abandoned his comeback with Ferrari because of a neck injury.

    The 40-year-old, who retired at the end of 2006, was set to deputise for the injured Felipe Massa at the European Grand Prix in Valencia on 23 August.

    "Unfortunately we did not manage to get a grip on the pain in the neck which occurred after the private F1-day in Mugello," Schumacher told his website.

    Veteran Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer will now stand in for Massa.
