    Mirek is right,while there is no advantage to this particular case,rules are rules.
    Plenty of others disqualified for the same reasons.
    I wouldnt like Sordo to withdraw,but everyone must play with same rules.

    I would say that since no real advantage was gained, a fine is reasonable punishment.
    Do You agree when the very same rules are applied in a different way in relation to the manufacturers and the privateers and when FIA completely contradicts their own statements in matter of days?

    I’ve seen exclusion in the past but times have changed I guess.
    I would like to hear Ogiers opinion about this

    Sorry, I am not informed enough. What particcular incident do you have in mind?

    In general I agree that the rules are same for everyone, and all transgressions should be followed by a punishment. However it seems fair that the severity of the penalty depends on the severity of the transgression of the particcular rule. In this instance the limit is set to 2%, Hyundais value was 2,3%. Had it been say 4%, a more severe penalty would be natural.
    So where would I draw a line? When should it be a fine, when a time penalty, when a disqualification of the driver or when should it be a disqualification of the entire team? Its a difficult question as any line, although necessary, would be arbritary. Luckily its a a question which is not up to me to answer.

    That being said, obviously the rules should be applied the same way to privateers. If anything, the fine should be reduced for a similar transgression (In this instance exceeding the limitation by 0,3%)

    euhm, no.
    some square corners, but no hairpins or chicanes. it has mostly fast flowing corners.

    its narrow, slippery, has many tricky place and deep cuts everywhere. but most importantly has deep ditches almost everywhere.
