Rosberg fined for not visiting stewards

Rosberg was summoned to see the stewards for his involvement in a collision with Alguersuari in FP2. The stewards decided that because of the circumstances of his crash, and the fact he had no previous offences, that he would escape a punishment, but were not impressed that he spoke to the media before visiting the stewards office.

Great work Britney, fancy getting yourself a fine from the stewards because you were too worried about getting on television.
nico   Nico Rosberg
Well Michael, I thought it was important that I convey my view to the media, although I accept I was in error to delay the stewards.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Listen Britney, if you become successful enough the media wait for you while you're in with the stewards. I think I kept them waiting a good 10 hours at Monaco the year I "lost it" at Rascasse.
nico   Nico Rosberg
For a driver of your sublime car control it was indeed a strange error that I still find difficult to comprehend Michael.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
You just don't get it do you Britney.
nico   Nico Rosberg
I believe it may be very valuable to learn from your mistakes as well as your victories Michael.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Well it seems you're getting good at the mistakes, not so great at the victories though. What are you up to now, zero?
nico   Nico Rosberg
Emulating your career is something I can only dream of Michael, although I hope that this opportunity to work so closely with you will help me to get there.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Hopefully you will get that elusive maiden win Britney. That will knock down the ratio of my victories to yours from infinity to a more respectable 91.

The McLaren group would just like to highlight the inconsistency apparent in this punishment, given Lewis has been repeatedly punished for more minor offences.

You'll find the key reason Rosberg got away with it is "no previous offences", Hamilton has a conviction rate Ted Bundy would wince at.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
That's Britney for you, no previous offences, no previous victories, no previous pole positions, no previous world titles.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I'm not going to react to you now Nando, this is the new calm Lewis that doesn't show any emotion any more. I'm just cool about everything.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Really, I thought you were just being a sulky prima-donna looking for attention by pretending to be miserable. I used to do that....when I was four.
MycLaren   Martin Whitmarsh
The McLaren group would just like to reassure everyone that even though Lewis looks unhappy, he is actually very happy inside, and is showing remarkable maturity.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Hmmm, I'm sure Ayrton Senna would have been screaming blue murder at the injustice of other drivers getting away without a penalty when he felt the authorities were picking on him all season.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
This is a frickin joke, I can't believe Nico has gotten away with it, if it was me I would have been frickin penalised. This is totally unfair man, the steward idiots totally have it in for me this year, Ayrton had the same problem. Yellow helmet plus McLaren = victim of injustice.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Ah, so mature, the power of auto-suggestion.
