Hamilton to face further punishment?

NEWS STORY
02/04/2009

Following the re-investigation of events in last Sunday's Australian GP, it is claimed that in addition to being excluded from the results, Lewis Hamilton could face further action.

In the wake of the hearing that saw the 2008 World Champion and his team stripped of third place in Melbourne, accused of acting "in a manner prejudicial to the conduct of the event by providing evidence deliberately misleading to the Stewards", an FIA spokesman has admitted that the Englishman could face further sanctions.

"We cannot not rule out further action at this stage," said the spokesman.

While it is highly unlikely that possible action will be as draconian as some sections of the media are claiming - some outlets claiming Hamilton could be thrown out of the championship - there are bound to be calls for some form of punishment after the McLaren driver was found not only to have been guilty of being 'economical with the truth', but also remaining silent while Trulli was punished.

After all, there are some in F1 who believe Hamilton owes Toyota, even if they are referring to Trulli's teammate, Timo Glock.
