    Unless the car trailing has passed the B-pillar, it is always 100% the fault of the car behind for running into the back of the car behind.

    Lewis could have come to a complete stop and still would not be in the wrong. The car behind was travelling too close and failed to avoid an accident.

    Are you trying to apply the rules of the public highway to racing?

    If Lewis had brake-checked Vettel, then Lewis would certainly have been in the wrong.

    From BBC..

    Todt said: "People say he had already a warning after Mexico. This is true, but it was a completely different matter. He lost control and was insulting one of the stewards. It was a different category.

    "So on the first category he has no more joker, on the second category he has no more joker."



    What gives... I'm guessing they don't want to upset Ferrari?

    What if he loses control in a third 'category'... such as choking Valteri out on the podium, Jean?

    Why? Because Vettel was following too closely? You should be at a distance that you're able to pull up in time no matter what the car in front does.

    On the road, yes. Not in a race.

    Something that should also be said is that Vettel has a history of occasional lapses in his concentration at times you wouldn't expect a professional racing driver to crash. He did crash into Webber under safety car conditions in Japan 2007 (incidentally, caused by Hamilton's swerving), and also hit a car he was lapping at a Malaysian Grand Prix a few years ago. Of course it's not something that happens every race, but it's not the first time that he makes odd mistakes.

    He also got a penalty for not keeping the appropriate distance to the safety car in Hungary a few years ago. He was as graceful about it as ever. It seems safety cars are challenging for him.

    Maybe he's slightly colourblind when it comes to anything silver.
    His eyes seem to play tricks on him as the silver cars seem to slow too quickly or start too fast.

    Well Mia you chaired your like, and you did it on this thread. Most contributors on this thread think that Seb got off too easy. I happen to be one of them. Mine is simply an opinion. Having said that I believe he deserved a more substantial penalty. Excluding him from that race seems appropriate
