Well, that "never had an issue before" thing is sure played many times. Pitting under closed pit-lane was never an issue before Singapore 2008, cutting a track and playing cat-and-mouse on the straight before Belgium 2008, overtaking at the final lap after SC came before Monaco 2009 etc...
How many time is needed before someone takes the job of actually reading and reviewing the Sporting regualtions thoroughtly?
BTW I'm not putting all the blame at Charlie and FIA. I have a lot of respect for track marshals and stewards jobs.
But all those "we haven't a proble with this before" cases ARE annoying.
