Should Skaife, Grech be fined??

Having seen, read and heard what these two Cowboys have had to say since their ignorance of safety, should they be fined, lose points or be disqualified from the Bathurst result. I personaly favour the second option. Which option do you consider to be appropriate for their distaste of the rules.

They have already received their punishment, they got a drive thru penalty and thats pretty much the end of it.

I think you should change your user name to "Rulemaker" - you seem to want to rewrite the rules now, not just "keep" them ...

Dude, there are questions over the penalty he ALREADY recieved! - As much as we all loved it when he got told to fix that door, that was all he deserved - I hate him with a passion, but let it go!

Re: Should Skaife, Grech be fined??

Depending upon who you listen too the team was notified of the infringement Quite a number of laps before the Black flag, I believe this is the problem Rulekeeper find offensive.

If HRT did argue, and therefore delay, then perhaps he has a point, although they bore the cost already, if they had Pitted immediately (voluntarily) MS may have won the race, the Saftey car would have been to his advantage.

Re: Should Skaife, Grech be fined??

Any team manager worth his salt is going to question and put a different point of view to try and avoid a penalty, otherwise whats the point of having them there. Same as FPR's boss made it clear that he wanted Skaife penalised so would Grech try and avoid a penalty...
