Just a little strategy put Hamilton into a no loss game with the rules. This should have been a stop and go penalty and not a drive through. After all a penalty is not a penalty if no penalty is realized! Confused, don't be. If the old man takes you out behind the wood shed and has a talk with you but never takes the belt off, it's not much if a talking to is it?

I clearly agree with you, there should have been at LEAST a stop and go penalty for Hamilton. But no the FIA have defeated the purpose when the investigation was not punctual to announce the investigation, moreover taking their sweet time to apply for the drive through penalty. Beside, the weird thing is that the safety car was ever so slow in front of the two Ferraris.
Its a shame that both Ferraris were fast in Valencia and fair enough one cant fight that kind bad luck, but then furthermore to rub it in with such judgement from the FIA...one can again raise the credibility issue of the FIA and the purity of decision of choices taken and orders.

It's so obvious the FIA screwed up.Something has to be done in future so that cheating scumbags like Hamilton can't get away with it without a proper penalty.If Alonso had cheated aswell by passing the safety car he would have finished 3rd at worst.

Maranello, 28 June – At the usual post-race briefing this morning in Maranello, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo and Stefano Domenicali examined what happened in yesterday’s race at Valencia in the cold light of day.
At the end of the meeting, the Ferrari president released the following statement:“The result of yesterday’s race was misrepresentative. Ferrari, which showed itself to be competitive in the European Grand Prix, paid a price that was too high for respecting the rules. Meanwhile those who didn’t follow the rules were penalised by the race officials in a way that was less severe than the damage suffered by those who did respect them. That is a very serious and unacceptable event that creates dangerous precedents, throwing a shadow over the credibility of Formula One. We are sure that the FIA will fully analyse what happened, taking the consequent necessary decisions. Ferrari will watch this with interest.”

This will only make Ferrari even more united and determined to beat the cheats fair and square on the track.
Bring on Silverstone!!
