Ferrari's $10,000 fine

The FIA Stewards have decided that Ferrari should be fined $10,000 for "unsafe release" of Felipe Massa from his pit stop. The stewards ruled that Massa had not gained any advantage from what happened and should not be further punished.

The FIA rules say that "it is the responsibility of the competitor to release his car after a pit stop only when it is safe to do so".
