Come on, you never thought it would be straightforward, did you?
It has been revealed that Lewis Hamilton is one of three drivers under investigation for breaching the wet weather tyre rules. The others being Jenson Button and Takuma Sato.
The three are deemed to have used two sets of wet weather tyres during the first session today, thereby breaching Article 25.3 of the Sporting Regulations, which states: "No driver may use more than one set of wet and one set of extreme weather tyres during P1 and P2."
Race Stewards will investigate the matter and are due to make a decision later today, though Ron Dennis took the opportunity to take a sly dig at the FIA.
"It's up to the stewards to decide if and what is the appropriate penalty," he said. "We're trying so hard, maybe there's a little too much tension in the team but it was a silly mistake.
"Hopefully it won't cost anything other than the team some problems," he added. "Take some World Championship Constructors' points away... oh, they've already done that!"
No doubt the 'fair play Tsar' will carry out his own investigation... in time!
