@ Richard

Please read my comment again mate.

As I said I am not defending anybody however I
don't think the stewards or FIA and/or ex Drivers
should crucify any particular driver.

If any particular driver is deemed dangerous his fellow competitors should be the ones to make judgement. They have a Drivers Group in place to
speak items of this nature and if considered neccesary allow the other competitors to make an approach and air the grievance.

It is not the the FIA/Ex Drivers lives who are at jeopardy. It is the competitors and they should be the ones to make judgement.Be assured if they had a problem with Hamilton long term this would be their avenue.The Drivers Group may be a toothless tiger on certain matters however when it comes to fellow competitors they are listened to within and beyond

It takes 2 to cause a crash. You saw it cleary in Monaco when MS passed LH at Loews. LH saw him and gave him room. No crash. When LH tried the same on FM, FM turned in and caused the crash to happen. If anyone was at fault, they both were.

It's actually starting a trend now. Given the amount of steward intervention, turning into the crash like FM did is more likely to get the other driver a penalty, so why not?

@flatout

The rule pertaining to the use of the light blue flag (or blue flashing light) in F1 is as follows:

*At any time, a stationary light blue flag may be shown to a driver at the pit lane exit to warn them that cars are approaching on the track.
*During practice, a light blue flag waved on the track notifies a driver that a faster car is about to pass them and they must move aside.
*During a race, a light blue flag waved on the track warns the driver that they are about to be lapped by a faster car and must let it pass. A driver may incur penalties if they ignore three successive blue flags.

Well Hamilton sure got an EARfull from Niki.. Old Lauda was on FIRE in his critique of Louis's driving.Don't think Hamilton is listening though.., Maybe Button winning in Canada in such an inspired drive will wake him up.Driving on the edge is exciting to watch, over the edge is not.
