The team McLaren will be investigated for FIA as there is a possible breaking of rules during the last race at the Monaco Great Prix. FIA governing body said Monday that it was going to review the evidence of the competition on Sunday, after Fernando Alonso finished in first place 4.095 seconds ahead of McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton
Alonso stated after the race that “he was told to take it”. On the other hand, Hamilton said "He was obviously close to me, and I was told to take it easy, at the end of the day, I am a rookie. I am in my first season in Formula One and I have finished second in only my first Monaco Grand Prix so I really can't complain. I've got No. 2 on my car. I am the No. 2 driver." On Monday FIA stated that McLaren was being investigated for "a possible breach of the International Sporting Code". "The code states it will punish "any fraudulent conduct or any act prejudicial to the interests of any competition or to the interests of motor sport generally." “Hamilton had twice been called in by McLaren to refuel earlier than scheduled', British newspapers reported Monday. FIA did not accept this after in a similar situation some time ago, Rubens Barrichello was told by Ferrari to allow teammate Michael Schumacher to pass him to win the 2002 Austrian GP and Ferrari was fined with a $1 million.
On the final bend, Barrichello move aside to allow Schumacher to strengthen his lead in the drivers' championship. That year, Schumacher won the championship, and Barrichello finished second.
