Those who don't view that as an attempt to knock out another driver are clearly the type that can't drive and chew gum at the same time. That was such a hilariously blatant move - from a pilot who's conditioned lightyears above such a granny on the freeway "accident".

Rosberg knows it, Webber knows it, Berger knows it, the FIA know it. They're all cheats. That's how badly you need to want to win, to become a professional athlete. Grow up and accept it.

Richard, you was right, the left front wheel was not in contact with the ground when the car crossed the track so I apologise for saying all wheels were in contact with the ground, it must read all wheels were attached "on the car" up to the contact with Rosberg.
What I was watching is F1/FOM property.

totally 100% agree with Berger..in the wrong direction, why MW turn his front wheel to the right,back to the track..definitely he want to crash somebody..damned MW..his not allowed to be a WDC..the stewards should give him a penalty to take Rosberg out..

So Webber's car rolls back across the track after hitting the wall without appearing to slow down ,,,,

Correct me here if my logic is wrong....I'm assuming an F1 car like most race cars,has separate front and rear braking systems. Webber's hit the wall with left rear which has collapsed the rear suspension, if it also broke the disc rotor or brake hydraulic line then he'd have no brakes on either rear wheel.

Because the L/H rear suspension's collapsed, the R/H front wheel's in the air so the only wheel he's got to stop him is the L/H front (going backwards on wet bitumen)

Sorry Gerhard, ....after the wall, Webber was a passenger

Berger is a man with a history of practical jokes and rather radical jokes. He once threw Senna's brand new (v expensive) titanium briefcase out of the helicopter to see if it really was indestructible.

I wonder whether this whole thing wasn't just a piece of wit that went straight over the heads of most observers.
