Who else thinks it's crap that:

1) Trulli is stripped of 3rd place for Lewis Hamilton letting him pass after an off-track excursion under yellow? That is, Trulli being stripped of position after making a pass that neither Trulli nor Hamilton found objectionable!

2) Vettel being not only docked 10 starting positions next week but also fined $50,000 for a simple racing incident where nobody should be to blame? I would think it was penalty enough that he had to retire from the race.

And man, what a funny looking car. Looks like a snowplow or something.

Well, the $50k was fair, it was because of the whole driving around with 3 wheels thing. If he had lost the wheel in a non-safety car situation it would have been dangerous as hell. He should be glad he didn't get anything worse for that. Also, that was the track where a marshall was killed by a flying wheel once.

Agreed on the other points, carrying over penalties to the next GP sucks anyway and even more so if they're unfair.

But hey, they've done stranger things, 2008 was crazy with strange penalties or lack of penalties.
