Mike Gascoyne, technical boss at Force India, has said that he was not impressed with McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton s hand gestures towards Giancarlo Fisichella as Hamilton was trying to pass the Italian driver for position.
Hamilton had a poor start to the race and coupled with a collision with Fernando Alonso, rapidly found himself near the back of the field. When attempting to overtake Force India driver Fisichella for position, Hamilton waved his fist angrily.
Talking to Swiss magazine Motorsport Aktuell, Gascoyne said, “I don t know why he did that. Fisichella was fighting him for position and he can t just expect to be let past. The gesture was totally unnecessary so it was especially good to be in front of him a the end!â€
