    Totally Vettel's doing for me.
    He cut across from number 1 pole because Verstappen had a better start. Neither realised how good Kimi's start was.
    Vettel tried to force Verstappen over therefore into Raikenen.
    Vettel should, IMHO, get a grid penalty in the next race.

    Yes however not a fan of Vettel and he may have 'caused' the incident but you can't really blame him trying to squeeze Verstappen and he didn't know that Kimi was coming up on the inside. If anything you need to point the finger at Ferrari for their shitty starting strategy, surely they would have spoken about Kimi coming up on the inside and surely Vettel would have known about it, poor communication if anything.

    I disagree, he has a habit of doing it unnecessarily. He has to leave Verstappen space or he would get penalised.

    There's no rules against squeezing another driver is there?

    There is a rule which says that he has to leave him a car's width and thy he cannot just push him off the track

    Which is what be did...the problem was that no one expected Kimi coming up on his inside, there wasn't anything illegal about that move in my mind.

    Vettel just doesn't have the awareness that people like Hamilton and Alonso have. I must admit that I'm a Hamilton fan and think Vettel is a whining git, but the only salvage I could take from qualifying is that I realised that with Vestappen up there, anything could happen as he doesn't pull out of anything (and is often overly aggressive). If I knew that, why didn't Vettel? Will go down as a racing incident, but Vettel's poor judgement just cost him the title.

    I posted this ages ago, but I still think Vettel needs to grow that moustache and embrace his evil alter ego

    Interesting video-they’re basically a bunch of little kids trying to stitch each other up

    I've been transfixed - I don't know if i can look away, it's absurd.

    This guy's got a set of pipes on him though, fair do's
