Petrov deserved a slap across the head for that move.... no one else to blame but himself.... shouldnt have chopped over to the left if he didnt have room, should never expect people to back off because you are moving into their area...

Good call from the stewards

In his interview during the race, Petrov said "the car in front of me stalled". Yes, he did cut across Hulkenberg, but to be fair to Petrov, it would have been really difficult to judge because he had no idea at that stage what speed Hulkenberg was doing, or even if he was running at all.

I think it is harsh for Petrov to be penalised whilst Massa's demolition of Liuzzi is deemed a racing incident.
