This is racing though, when you see a driver in front of you make such a big mistake of course you want to pounce on it esp. in the era where overtaking is so difficult. You can't expect Kimi to slam on the brakes and kindly allow Verstappen to recover his spot :tongue:
Exactly, but as I say, if Kimi WASN'T going for that gap then Max would have been fine.

Here are the steward's words for Verstappen:
The Stewards reviewed the video evidence, and determined that car 33 locked up his brakes and left the track at turn 16, cut the chicane and rejoined track on the racing line in turn 17 and in the process collided with car 7
He didn't collide with Raikkonen because he rejoined unsafely. He collided with Raikkonen because Raikkonen put his car in harm's way.

Similarly, the explanation for Vettel at Montreal:
The stewards reviewed video evidence and determined that Car 5,left the track at turn 3, rejoined the track at turn 4 in an unsafe manner and forced car 44 off track. Car 44 had to take evasive action to avoid a collision.
Again, similarly, Hamilton took the risk and put his car in harm's way. Imagine if Vettel had rejoined the track sideways and out of control? They would have both collided and we would all be saying Hamilton should have slowed down and been more cautious rather than trying to force his way past.

Pure speculation. Let's talk about facts and what actually happened. I understand you want to defend Vettel no matter what but you're basically saying if anyone should be punished for Vettel's mistake, it's Hamilton and not Vettel. That's insane.

Yup. Hill should have never gone for that gap. Had he waited till after the corner, he would have been champion.

I don't want to defend Vettel, I can't stand the guy. I don't like Hamilton either. I'm just sick of these micro-aggressions between the race stewards and the drivers.

20 years ago the only penalties we had were 10-second stop/go penalties and black flags/DSQs. Every other mistake was punished by gravel traps and tyre barriers.

Now we have in-race and post-race time penalties. Grid drops of 3, 5, 10 or 20 places. Reprimands. A complete penalty points license system. And a team of celebrity judges who sit there handing all of these out like the panel on the X-Factor. It's a NO from me.

I'm the last guy who supports the astroturf hell. But that's the product of current racing. Drivers are never punished by going off track. A simple spin in the gravel would lose you entire session and now you just put the throttle down and can get away with multiple errors so drivers don't cherish what they have anymore. Actually CGV is one track that can punish your mistakes as seen with Magnussen in Q2 and Vettel's error wouldn't be much different in the old days too. But the whole 5 secs. penalty BS stems from those incidents when drivers make an error yet are not punished by the gravel at all bc it's not there. This is a cultural thing right now but it will only get worse with more astroturf hell incoming.

Yes. Basically I'm sticking to the opinion that the penalties are crap, but if they're there I fully expect the judges to enforce them.

Anyone else spot the flaw in Jolyon Palmer's logic of "I would've done the same... and I would've expected the same penalty"?

Actually if Sebastian had let Hamilton pass, Hamilton would have done it with four wheels of the track.

That Palmer wouldn't have ever been battling for the win?

That he'll never drive for Ferrari?

He'll never have Hamilton behind him?

That he would have probably spun?

Nico Rosberg, rival to only Jaques Villeneuve for most undeserving Champion, goes against the opinion of every other motorsport name i've seen on Twitter, from Button and Andretti to the Wurz and to the Coronels and Van Der Garde's of this world.
Rosberg's justification is that Vettel was out of control when he forced Hamilton wide. It's something Rosberg is uniquely aware of as he himself was always in complete control of his car when forcing Lewis and other rivals off the circuit.
:agreepost:

The irony was so thick I left a funny taste in my mouth just from reading his comments.

I think the penalty was consistent with others handed out. But I don't like these rules/penalties because they seem subjective. There may be objective evidence, but it's not transparent to the fans.

One thing I've had a chance to think about is whether Vettel applying throttle during his grass-capade led to him coming back on out of control. Had he let off a bit more, he would have had the car under control during his return to the circuit.

However, it sure seems like he was looking in the mirror the entire time he was drifting to the right (as if to check the position of the driver behind). My gut is telling me there is more to this story.
Bolded the sentence to my reply.
You keep it pinned to keep control. A small blip and it will go wrong.
Have you ever handbraked and turned in on ice or snow respectively? If you blip the throttle only shortly the entire stability of the drift will go out of the window so you will want to keep the throttle open at a certain amount. Same on motorcycles by the way but much more important as it well can mean highsider depending on the speed you blipped
If you are not willing to risk the unusual,you will have to settle for the ordinary-Jim Rohn
