Massa penalised, Schu escapes

The race stewards were kept busy as they had to deal with several incidents after the Canadian Grand Prix.

First they slapped Felipe Massa with a 20-second penalty for speeding in the pitlane during the closing stages of the race. However, luckily for the Ferrari driver the penalty doesn't have an affect his 15th place finish as he was a lap clear of Heikki Kovalainen in 16th place.

Massa was forced to make a pit stop with just seven laps to go after damaging his front wing during a scrap with Michael Schumacher for P10.

He was clocked at 105.4 km/h in the pitlane, exceeding the speed limit of 100 km/h.

With the infringement coming so late in the race, the stewards had no option but to punish him a 20-second penalty instead of the normal drive-through penalty.

The stewards, one of which was former World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi, opted not to punish Mercedes GP driver Schumacher for his role in the collision after looking into the matter post-race.

"The Stewards after hearing the explanation of both the Competitors representatives and the drivers decided that the incident requires no further action," the stewards' official report said.

Meanwhile, Toro Rosso's Jamie Alguersuari was given a reprimand for his involvement in collision with Williams' Rubens Barrichello during the early stages of the race.

Robert Kubica also received a reprimand for his 'dangerous entry to the pit' at the halfway stage

The Renault driver dived across Force India's Adrian Sutil just before entering the pitlane.

Massa did run into the back of Schummi.
I thought Kubica's pit entry was just a matter of track position, when you gotta pit, you gotta pit.

And Hamilton didn't get a reprimand for his drag race with Alonso? What were these stewards looking at? Its funny, I noticed that David Coulthard was at the event and figured he was the guest steward. But when old Emmo was introduced as the driver-steward I thought they could have done better.
