Oct.11 (GMM) Fears have subsided that championship leader Lewis Hamilton's pole position for the Japanese grand prix might be in doubt.
A journalist during the official post-qualifying press conference informed the McLaren driver that he was under investigation for possibly impeding Nelson Piquet."Are you serious? From qualifying?" Hamilton replied in exasperation. "I don't think so. At one stage he pulled out of the way of me during the qualifying session but I came in that lap."It turns out that Renault engineers did make an enquiry with the FIA's Charlie Whiting, but only after mishearing a radio message from Piquet about Hamilton.Ultimately, there was no incident to investigate.
