New Evidence Disqualifies Hamilton from Australian GP

hamilton-australian-gpIn last Sunday’s Australian Formula 1 race, Toyota’s Jarno Trulli finished the race in the third. He was later penalized 25 seconds for an alleged illegal pass of Lewis Hamilton while the safety car was out. McLaren was responsible for filing the complaint. The Trulli’s penalty pushed Hamilton into the third position, a very impressive finish especially considering Hamilton started at 18th on the grid.

New evidence has now surfaced that is indicating Hamilton let Trulli go by intentionally. Hit the jump to continue…Based on the radio transmissions between the drivers and their pit crews from the race, the FIA has determined that Hamilton and McLaren intentionally deceived race officials. For their dishonest complaint against Trulli, Hamilton and McLaren have been stripped of all points from the Australian GP. Not a good way to start the season.

Now acquitted of any wrong-doing, Trulli has reclaimed his third place finished.
