    that would be (should have been) the appropriate punishment.

    Here's a stir for you .
    I'm with JV when he says that he'd rather see Vettel and his anger at low speed , than hear Lewis ask if there's anything that Bottas can do to slow Seb down .

    It's not political correctness, it's common decency and respect.
    And I've pointed it it out once...right now!
    you just don't see it, but to me its rather offensive.
    So i will point it out. I really do like Tazio and find him funny most of the time. but in this case it was a bit out of bounds.
    There is no need to make a stereotyped "black american" caricature of Hamilton.
    It's a shame you can't see it or understand.
    Then again based on your comments, perhaps that is to be expected from you.

Seb is a 4-times world champion and knows perfectly how to bang wheels at low speeds without causing damage to the cars. This is a matter of ethics and of whether someone with so many titles to their name should be driving like a hot-headed teenager, but I don't think there are safety grounds that warrant a race ban for him.

    As a reminder, Pastor Maldonado did something much worse during qualifying at a Belgian GP and didn't get a race ban either.
    The point is, he shouldn't be banging wheels intentionally in the first place. The FIA have an opportunity to make it clear that this sort of conduct is not acceptable for the sport. But more importantly, they need to ensure that the decisions of the stewards are applied equally to all drivers regardless of whether they are world champions or not.

    I cannot reconcile Kyvat's punishment which was much less compared to Vettels, to the wheel banging penalty given. There is clear favoritism displayed here and it is ugly.

    Punishment aside, Vettel has displayed that he is brittle. He has shown that he may not be as tough as most people think. I am really wondering if he can take the heat of dueling with Hamilton for the title. Lets face it, he has not really come up against a credible opponent with a competitive car. He dueled most with Webber and with Alonso in an inferior Ferrari at the time. Now he is taking on Hamilton in almost as competitive machinery as he has and he is feeling the pinch of it.

    I may be wrong, but this is what l can make out from this incident.

    Some of you are over reacting.. just slightly!
    Yes, it was poor behaviour but c'mon guys, a season ban?... seriously?
    Ask yourself if you would be saying the same if Lewis had done it...

    Nah, black flagged and six penalty points would be my recommendation.
