no real argument on rejoining and forcing Lewis to brake but with no real room on that corner and it all taking place in a blink of an eye how could he have rejoined the track safely,its not like a he went of went of track regained full control then cut across car #44 over a few hundred meters.

Watched Jenson Button talking about it before. He made a similar point about it happen in a blink of an eye, and how his hand position showed he was correcting over steer.

I think Vettel knew what he was doing to some extent, but i'm not sure he could've done too much more given the circumstances. Maybe, maybe not. Still think it was harsh though.

what he cared about was losing that place, so moved to cut Lewis off.

its not like he was given a stop and go.


the same sort of incident happened last year and that got a 5 second penalty and Vettel agreed with it in that moment.

with about 10 laps to go and they are focusing on the battle for 14th/15th pretty much said it all.

its not Mercedes fault that they have just developed a great car and have the best driver but as far as entertainment goes F1 is in a hole lot of trouble.

the race was over after the first 50 meters....

nah man, NASCAR's to me is like MLB. i have tried for over a decade to get into it but it sucks. but i do always try to catch daytona 500 and love 'days of thunder'.

watched about 11 hours of the recent le mans 24hours. NASCAR doesn't have a look in.

it is one of those sports where being too good at it does ruin it a touch but Lewis is nailing it at the moment and going forwards hopefully he can end his career holding the most titles.

the next major shake up isn't due till 2021 so Lewis has another 30+ races and 2 more titles to help get closed to or pass Shumi stats wise but reading the debate on askcrofty think Senna even without the biggest numbers will always be the #1 in most F1 followers eyes.

since 2014 there have been 108 GP's and Lewis has won 57 and mainly his other team mate/the other 9 teams have 51.

when Michael was dominating there where not 20 or so races a season but if there where you wonder where his wins total could be.
