That would be because the thought police decided to take issue with something that wasn't in compliance with the rules, regulations and laws of thought as myopically drafted by the said thought police and enforced by said thought police.

Okay, so to clear this up I contacted Martin Brundle and I asked him if Hamilton had been knocked out or not, this is the reply I got from him.

Martin Brundle wrote:Don't believe Lewis was unconcious after Spa shunt and I saw him quoted as saying he was unharmed. Suspect he was on team radio


So there you go, make of that what you will.

thanks for sharing with us these datails, however I must point out that you forgot quite a vital piece of information: what did you eat?


Damn, for a while, I thought you were Sin. ^o^ ^o^

I was deep frying some really oily and tasty potatoes. :hungry:

Oh, when you told me this yesterday, I thought you spoke to Martin Whitmarsh. :armchair:

He can pass, he did it today, so there!! :evil:


+1

Isn't it interesting how much better Vettel's overtaking looks once you give him a car that is fast also on the straight? No more "crash kid". That comment (about Vettel being the crash kid) bit M. Whitmarsh right in the a*s ^o^ He now has a crash kid in his own team. :hihi:

And about him only overtaking with DRS, what about going round the outside of Rosberg at Blanchimont? That was a really great pass.

Wha-? You contacted Martin Brundle? And Martin Brundle got back in touch with you? Butwhatbutwhobuthow? Give me his number and address, I wanna stalk him until he gets a restraining order out! :evil: :jester:

Anyhow, if Hamilton really wasn't unconscious, and therefore voluntarily allowed his car to continue into a tyre wall, I shall refer you back to my original thesis regarding his incident - "F*ckin' hell, Lewis, you idiot."

Goddammit, it's getting harder by the race not to be a Vettel fan; the excuses are getting thin on the ground. (Still not a fan yet though :vettel: )

Yes I did directly ask Martin Brundle and he did directly reply to my question.

Oh and I know it was said Hamilton didn't have his hands on the steering wheel, but aren't they told to let go of it or else risk breaking their wrists on impact?
