20 second penalty for Magnussen, he's out of the points in 12th. Deserved.

I dunno man. He was too aggressive, that's undeniable, but they'd all have done the same in that group (maybe other than Button). Fair enough on giving him a penalty, but 20 seconds is too harsh, maybe a 5 place grid drop for Monza would have been better?

He got 2 penalty points as well. 


Dave, he pushed Alonso on the grass while doing 320+ at Kemmel straight, it was a desreved one.


And now, let the fireworks begin

Well Alonso knows how to handle that after Vettel pushed him onto the grass at Monza ;) I'm sure they penalised Vettel for that but I can't remember what it was? Definitely not a good move from Magnussen, but had it happened with some of the drivers lower down the field I don't think his penalty would have been so harsh.

Lol! It'd be amazing if that's true, but I'll bet it's just a rumour :p

Wolff: Unacceptble racing.

Can understand why he said that though given Rosberg's clumsy move. If it were me I'd have backed off after the first attempt maybe if that had happened in the last 5 laps or whatever you can understand a lunge like that but not in lap 2. One of the golden rules of F1 is never take out your team mate and like it or not Rosberg broke that rule. I just hope they learn from the mistake. There will no doubt be some heated discussions going on at Mercedes after todays race.
