All I know is what I had been and am watching.
Mark Weber's car had all wheels not only attached and rotating but all of them in contact with the ground up to the point of contact with Rosberg.

What happened in Turkey was Vettels own fault, Webber has all the rights to defend his position, everyone has the right to defend. And if Vettel all of a sudden steers to the right, then thats his decision, but he won't get any better of it.

sunny. i cannot understand what you have been watching. the utube video which i referred to CLEARLY shows the left rear of webbers car, collapsed, with the right front at least 6 inches clear of the ground, and the car skidding on its plank. the view is from track behing webbers mistake. there is no way he could have had any control of the car.

@Nigelman - I agree. The point that I was making is that when Schumi does this he is villified. He did not touch or hinder Rubens yet he got a huge amount of criticism and an unjust penalty for Rubens's overtaking manouver. It is the double standard not the driving style that bothers me the most.

Looking at the footage on youtube I believe he could of stopped the car going back across the track. As soon as he hits the wall he turns the wheel right hand down, maybe he felt it was a better place to leave the car on the inside of the track where it was less likely to get hit. Or maybe he was just hoping to bump into hamilton.

If you look at the outside footage then as he slides back across the track it is clear that the rear suspension is broken and it is likely that one of the rear wheels isn't touching the track.

If you look at the onboard footage you can see from the tyre tread that as he rebounds off the wall, the front wheels are already locked and the front wheels aren't even pointing in the same direction.

With all the water on the track, it is highly likely that once the suspension had gone that he was floating on a film of water between the track and the plank.

Furthermore, from the in-car footage, you can see that although he does turn the steering to the left at one point, there is no response from the front wheels. The steering is broken.

if you look at the in car footage you will see when he hits the wall the impact turns the wheel fully to the right, he does turn slightly to the left and you do see the wheels turn very slightly.
