F1 » Liuzzi penalised after 'torpedoing' Rosberg, Petrov

Vitantonio Liuzzi: I had a good start getting past both Virgins, Lotuses and Daniel [Ricciardo, my team-mate] but then I went for another overtaking manoeuvre and got closed out. That put me into the grass and once I was there I tried to slow down but completely lost control of the car and unfortunately hit other cars. I am really sorry for Petrov, Rosberg and the other drivers who were forced to retire because of this.

The drivers at the back are trying to get themselves noticed by bigger teams. If they are within the 107% rule they are just as entitled as any to be on the track and to try and make positions up. It's not like Tonio lost his head and tried to outbrake half the field, he was pushed on the grass by a Lotus and afterwards was essentially a passenger.
