Lewis Hamilton escapes again penaltyLewis Hamilton has been fined 15.000 euros by stewards at the Brazilian Grand Prix and had the offending wet weather tire set confiscated after an inquiry at Interlagos on Friday’s Free practice session. The Briton, as well as Jenson Button and Takuma Sato, received the penalty for breaching Article 25.3 of the Sporting Regulations by using more than one set of wet tires in the rain hit morning practice session.
