    Schoolboy error... and then petulance you would expect from a badly behaved nursery child.

    I was very surprised by his very lenient punishment. I'd black flag ANY driver who did something like that intentionally if I was a race steward... even Fernando!

    One thing that occurred to me afterwards is that earlier in the race, after a previous SC restart, there was a radio conversation between Bonno and Lewis to the effect of "be careful - you were a little too close to the safety car on that restart" and Lewis shrugging it off.

    It does seem to be an issue with the long front straight that the leader needs to leave a *huge* gap to the SC before getting to that final turn, where they're going to need to come out of that corner at racing speed but need to not catch up the SC before it peels into the pits.

    So I was wondering: was there a reminder over the radio to Hamilton to be sure to leave a big gap right before that incident?

    Yes, that's around 27mph over nearly 3 whole seconds, that's nothing!... and certainly not indicative of a brake test if you are suggesting the Marshall's are lying?

    This is F1 and Seb is a top racing driver with reactions that could slow the car many many thousand times faster than that. He was driving with undue care and attention for how close he was to Lewis.
    I think your dislike for Lewis is colouring your judgement here.

    That was such a bad move on Hamilton - school playground stuff - bit of an insult to schoolchildren!
    They did for Kyvat at the Canadian GP, l see no reason why they could not do the same for Vettel.

    I think it was pretty poor from Seb but calling for championship bans is too far.

    One race at most. I think that would be about right.

    Suggesting a season ban is a bit ridiculous. It was pathetic but he didn't do any real damage (as far as we know).. I was thinking just a black flag and 6 penalty points would be enough and send a strong message without being too heavy handed.
    We really just need consistent race stewarding.

    well it seems the FIA think further action might be warranted.
    Just announced by Auto-Motor-und-Sport that Jean Todt and the FIA are investigating the incident with Vettel potentially being summoned to Paris sometime this week.
    Vettel was previously warned about actions that might bring the sport into disrepute after Mexico and was let off with a warning not to repeat such behavior lest he incur real sanctions. Well now it seems that this incident was deemed a breaking that mandate they leveled on him.
