Ferrari boss responds to Hamilton penalty

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali left Spa Francorchamps this evening with more than he expected after the end of the race as three hours later news emerged that Hamilton had been penalized and Ferrari's Felipe Massa inherited the win.

"I have often said that the race is not over until the official results are published and that was the case today," said Domenicali. "As usual, Ferrari will not comment on the Stewards' decision."

"After the race, we were called to the Stewards and we explained our position," We are very disappointed for Kimi, who had driven a great race and deserved the win, especially at this rather difficult time," he added. "This result is obviously very important for our Championship hopes: now we must maintain maximum concentration and prepare as well as possible for the forthcoming races, starting at Monza where we will be racing in front of our home fans. We will also need their support at such a delicate point in the season."

Ferrari meanwhile insisted they had nothing to do with the stewards' investigation and that they did not lodge a complaint.
