    Default F1 Spa: Why were Hamilton & Alonzo on the back row?

    Obviously I am missing something. The commentators just said something about penalties but were not specific. HELP!

    I didn't pay close attention but for Hamilton they made changes to the car (engines, etc) which sent him to the back anyway, so they made a bunch more to add up to a 55 grid spot penalty. Alonzo may have been only 35 spots. It turned out to not matter and now he's in much better shape for the remaining season.

    Google "Hamilton Spa Penalties" for complete details

    Google? Why? I'd rather get my info. from friends. You are right, both were penalized for equipment changes.
