If both are guilty then both should get the same penalty. Another spineless decision by the stewards when it comes to Hamilton's antics.
If Hamilton took a machine gun to the paddock he'd probably get another reprimand but no penalty!

I saw it too, but guess what it didn't cause a collision, who knows the reason for it, only Hamilton I suppose, but a straight running Mclaren was hit by a Williams which had swerved into the path of the Mclaren. so one act was unknown and caused no contact and the other act was deliberate and it did.

Do that on the open road and you'll lose your license or your no claim bonus.

Hey decko that is one of most stupid things I have every read about motor sports since I started to follow it 50 years ago!!

Try, speeding, wandering across lanes, passing because you "feel" you are a bit ahead of the other guy, forcing cars slightly slower than you to let you pass, going into corners by delaying your braking distance, list is endless, on an open road. License will be history, I am sure. You'd also be taking a greater risk than current drivers face.

Come on son. THIS IS RACING NOT AN OPEN ROAD!!! A word of warning, though... if you think F1 currently is about racing, save yourself the heart attack you'll be facing by watching NASCAR. Hey, they run into each other - ON PURPOSE!

To prevent the survey from being further influenced by the Hamilton fan club or the F1 School for Blind Stewards, an IQ test should be administered before being allowed to vote.

I used to be somewhat of a Hamilton fan but his behavior this year has ended that. It is about time another driver pushed back.

I try to keep an open mind on responsibility for racing incidents and cetainly have no time for some of Lewis Hamilton's antics. However, I think that in his case those who saw any contributary actions by Lewis Hamilton to this incident are hallucinating

Admittedly Hamiliton has caused a few crashes whilst trying to overtake others but that's racing. Maldonardo wasnt pushing back or trying to overtake, he wasnt even racing. He deliberately crashed into Hamiliton after crossing the checkered flag. It was pointless and stupid .
