Ron DennisMcLaren’s boss Ron Dennis has stated at the end of the French Grand Prix that Hamilton’s drive-through penalty was unfair as the Briton would have passed Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Vettel before cutting the chicane. Hamilton, who took the start from the 13th spot following Montreal’s incident, received another penalty during Sunday’s race for having gained an advantage on lap 1 when he cut the Nurburgring chicane while passing Vettel’s STR3.

“I don’t think he gained a position by being off the road,” said Dennis. “It is our opinion he was past before he got squeezed off the circuit. No position was gained. There’s nothing to be gained from saying anything else.”
