Now that Johnny Herbert has a $10000 fine for jump starting the race, and then
not taking his 10 second stop-go penalty, do you think Hakkinen and Alesi will
club together to pay it for him?

Herbert and $10000 Fine

Is it really true that Johnny got a $10,000 fine for jumping the start and
not takink the 10sec. stop and go-penalty ? If it is, it is one of the
silliest things I have heard so far. How can one penalize a driver for
actually being hit by another ? (Johnny had not any chance at all to take
the 10sec. penalty because he was out of the race!) Normally the penalty for
the jump start should make sure that none of the drivers has advantages by
jumping the start. So, what is the advantage Johnny has by going out of the
race ? (perhaps the FIA should penalize Schumacher for not letting Damon win
the race...)

Yes, it is true. After the race, the stewards sent their report to the
FIA recommending collection of the fine after a repeat of the same action
at the Canadian GP, ie. failing to take the 10second stop-go penalty.

Of course, as I said, JH was taken out by Hakinnen at that one, so in
both cases he was taken out before he could correct the action.
