Robby Gordon tells the French to kiss his ass

Robby Gordon is not taking his suspended disqualification from the 2012 Dakar peacefully. Gordon was found in violation of technical regulations, I believe 1P and 3P, which state that anyone getting too close to a winning French driver in a French run Rally will run afoul of article 1P and 3P.
Gordon was clearly guilty of getting too close to Stephane Peterhansel who in a bit of irony is driving for Mini who's notorious disqualification from the 1966 Montecarlo Rally was also due to running afoul of Article 1P and 3P!
To punctuate his salutation to the Dakar organizers, Gordon won today's stage by 15 minutes over his nearest rival.
