    It is true throughout car racing that, absent the lead car altering their line to block, it is ALWAYS the overtaking car's responsibility to avoid contact. That includes restart laps.

    So Lewis provoked him because he slowed down and should not have done so.... so that Seb could stay much closer to him and increase his chances of jumping him on the restart?

    You are joking right?

    Mia, if Vettel felt the same as you, then he most certainly should not have apologized and taken full responsibility for the incident. He should have continued to argue that (illogical) point and stood his ground. Let the cards fall where they may.

    In other news, Jean Todt will not be at the Austrian Grand Prix this weekend. He'll be singing in a classical boys' choir as a castrati.

    i hope you can now amend your statements after this press conference.
    It is weird when the driver himself admits all the wrongdoing but your dislike of Hamilton still sees you blame Lewis.
    laughable if not so sad

    It's not just in racing where Sebastian receives special treatment. This forum used to have a thread titled "Vettel showing his true personality" which held some great discussions negative and positive, however one of the moderators "decided" to close it because they didn't like what the contributors had to say. Essentially a gag order.

    I think Vettel does feel the same as Mia, and that's why he gave a rather mealy-mouthed apology when ordered to by the FIA.
    That doesn't mean they are right of course!

    Yes, I think so too.

    As a 'star' it must be very difficult to remain grounded and not end up a bit up yourself, when effectively living in an echo chamber with everyone surrounding you constantly agreeing with you and telling you what they think you want to hear.
    I think very few would remain immune to that.

    He needs to take a course in "method" acting .
    It would perhaps help him stay in character for the whole weekend .

    Mr. Vettel is making no fans right now .

    So the FIA did not think Vettel should be punished. So l hope they do not punish any other driver that does the same.
