There was a case about fuel in 1995 or so... they disqualified the team but not the drivers.
Also, I think yesterday's case was due to "special circumstances", i.e. temperature raising by 5 degrees in the last hour before race.
Nonetheless, rules are rules, and when they're broken you can expect everything. So, I'll keep waiting. Although I too find McLaren's final move a bit useless and sad. But seen how the whole season was, I didn't expect anything less (Ferrari would have done the same, BTW).
Yesterday, what a race.
Everything went against Hamilton: Massa blocking him at the start, he risking a collision with Alonso (Lewis' mistake? dunno), an unexplainable technical problem (!?! what was it?), and finally a suicidal 3-stop strategy decided by the team. Had one of these 4 things not happened... but well, it was just not his day. Better luck next year (maybe).
As for the rest...
I loved Lewis too. He has shown great things in his first season. Maybe he was even a lot lucky in the first 15 races (except Nurburgring)... had he had his share of misfortune (and of mistakes) earlier in the season, he wouldn't be so sorry for losing the championship at the last race. He also started making mistakes once put under serious pressure. He'll have other chances - I wait to see what he will be able to achieve.
Alonso... well, I understand the bad atmosphere inside the team, but he just didn't live up to expectations. As the world champion in charge both his performance and behavior were often unsatisfactory, to say the least (Montreal, Hungaroring anyone?).
So, it turns out there was basically one person losing both teams and drivers champioships: Ron Dennis.
At this point, the best driver and team were really Raikonnen and Ferrari. They had troubles and technical failures in the first part of the season, but pulled out the best when the game seemed over (and McLaren started doing harakiri).
Who will be in McLaren next year?
