Lewis Hamilton escapes again penaltyAFP France are reporting this evening that both William Toyota and BMW Sauber are under investigation by the FIA following the Brazilian Grand Prix. Nico Rosberg finished a superb fourth today at Interlagos, chased across the line by Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld.

Details are not clear at the moment, but it seems there is a question mark over the fuel used in the 71-lap season finale and that has massive ramifications in terms of the outcome of the 2007 drivers’ championship. All we know at this early stage is that representatives have been called to face the Stewards from both Williams and BMW.

Raikkonen took the chequered flag this afternoon with rivals Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton third and seventh respectively. The result was that Raikkonen won the title by one point from the McLaren Mercedes duo. Should there be any significant penalty applied to Rosberg, Kubica or Haiedfeld, Hamilton could be promoted from seventh position. A fifth place in the classification would give him the championship in what would be a very cruel and controversial manner.
