mad Skaife out burst being investigated

As usual a Technical difficulty is making the investigation of Marks outburst after race 2 nearly impossible. The matter is before the stewards now

What, the HRT logo on Skaifes clothing?

If he gets away with that behaviour there is seriously something wrong. I won't believe it if he does. It was totally uncalled for and a slur on the sport and business.

If there is a technical difficulty, I still have the tape so they can call me!

If they just give HRT a fine that is pathetic because they can just open their wallets on the spot and pay it.
Taking points away from them would be a better option.

Take 350 points from both Bright and Skaife should be a fair enough penalty.. hehe...

Hmm, how about losing some points, a fine, AND getting bagged out a bit for the bad publicity for the sport? Eh? I reckon that's the go here.

What do people think of Cameron McConvilles arguements in Motor mag as to how drivers should be punished in the Shell Series? For those who haven't read it, basically Cameron has proposed the drivers go under a 'sin-bin' type system, where a driver may be penalised for certain offences by not allowing the driver to compete in a particular round, but the team might replace the driver with someone from, say, the Konica Lites series. For example, Skaife could be punished for his outburst by not starting in race 1 at Barbagallo. A lighter punishment might be starting from the back of the grid.

Incidents like those we saw at Eastern Creek could be avoided. Rather than make rash, often half-baked on-the-spot decisions they could refer matters to the end of the round, and deliberate better. Perhaps this sort of system would have seen Craig Lowndes allowed to start from pole in round 2 at the creek, with Ambrose next to him. With more time to mull over it, perhaps they would have let the Lowndes incident slide, and Ambrose might have suffered penalty at Hidden Valley.

Yeah, McConville would be half right if it wasn't for the fact the guy is a panel beater's nightmare. When was the last time he finished a race without major panel damage either self inflicted or otherwise? I think inward assessment is required first!

I know it's hard at the back of the pack, but there's just as many of them getting by unscathed. Go figure.
