I would like to file a protest against Manuel Derka, for hitting me behind at the very start of the race and at the very first turn/corner. Due to this collision I couldn't start the bolid and lost/missed the entire race.
I hope this will be taken in consideration by the responsible members

The race replay has been reviewed per our normal procedures. The results will stand as final.
Yes there was some contact here and there, but given the circumstances we are not moving forward with any penalties. Visar, the incident you referenced was reviewed and was found to be a racing incident. As with every Driver Briefing we recommend extreme caution and extra space be given at the start of every Grand Prix. This incident is more proof that a little extra space given can accommodate both cars and thus safeguard the races of both participants.
Good luck in San Marino,
President of the M' Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile
