Bourdais given 25sec Penalty. Massa promoted to 7th!

I'm sorry, but this is complete bullshit.
From what I saw, Bourdais exited the pits, and simply held his line into turn one. He is racing for position, not a lap down, so what is he supposed to do? Just park his car in the main straight and say "After you, sir." to Massa in his mighty Ferarri?
And why was the incedent delt with post-race, there was quarter of the race left, surly if an infringement took place, Bourdais should have been given a drive through. This whole mess stinks.

It is nonsense like this which is ruining the sport. And gives feul to the claims that the FIA are pro-Ferarri.
Oh well, Massa is now only 5pts behind, so that is something I suppose.
