Why do we need stewards? I thougtht open wheel racing cars were extrememly dangerous if the wheels ride over one another, a good reason not to want to touch whoever you are passing. Lets have RACING.

After so much bumper car action, Jenson came away with losds of luck, as everyone else who bumped crashed out. It was simply Jensons day when vettel cracked.(', ':blush:')

A disgrace, Button check his mirror and puts Hamilton in the wall, then he forces Alonso off and gets no sanctions................. What a surprise.

Hamilton spins Webber and again no sanctions........

McLaren drivers seem to be able to do what they like and get away with it.

Im always fed up with those stewards and decisiois.. there should be either point system for relentles driving so drivers would get equal penalties, or yellow and red cards.. anyway i personally think those accidents should go to f1 driver forum to sort it out for themselves, obviously with fia and steward advisory or monitoring. Give all drivers a voice about what is going on the track make it clear for godsake after 50 yrs of F1 finally!!!

Would like to know how jenson taking fred out of the race was less of " causing an avoidable accident " than Di Resta running into the back of the Sauber? The only car damaged in the Di Resta incident was his! Nice consistent stewarding there!

i think that the webber/hamilton and button/alonso were two similar incidents, that were just racing incidents. in both cases the inside car was being given room, but the room included the kerbs, as would be normal in a dry race. however, the painted kerbs were slippy from the rain, so the inside car in both cases, had little grip and slipped into the outer car. unfortunate , but a racing incident.

For crying out loud - the people on this forum are supposed to be enthusiasts yet there is so much negative comment about the incidents (and others) that I do wonder how many of you actually know anything about the sport you follow. This is called racing people, simple as that. We don't have enough of it these days and when something happens, the hand-wringing and "Elving Safety" crowd get on their high horse so fast it makes me sick.
