NEWS STORY
07/09/2008

Race Stewards at Spa Francorchamps are investigating the incident in which Lewis Hamilton attempted to pass Kimi Raikkonen at the final chicane, when the Englishman cut the corner.

Although the McLaren driver did gain an advantage by cutting the corner, he subsequently slowed and allowed the Finn to re-pass, taking back the lead with a bold move at La Source.

However, speaking at the post-race press conference, Hamilton said that while he was ahead of the Ferrari at the entry to the final chicane, the Finn forced him wide.

Both drivers continued, and as the weather conditions worsened they struggled for grip, both spinning off until Raikkonen finally went off into the tyre barriers.
