F1 » Karthikeyan criticised by Vettel, penalised by officials


HRT driver Narain Karthikeyan has been compared to a "cucumber" by Sebastian Vettel, and given a post-race by the race stewards. But at least Jenson Button doesn't blame him.

Come on, you lot. It is obvious who is to blame for both Button's and Vettel's incidents! Lewis Hamilton. For goodness sake, he was on the same track so OBVIOUSLY it was him! (Button admitted but Vettel was OBVIOUSLY cutting in front too soon - OBVIOUS wasn't it?) And yes, rolling road blocks have no place in F1, especially when they use races as testing. Until the greed of the Rights Holders is quashed, we will have to suffer second rate teams.

Posters (and posers!) Listen or read what Narain Karthikeyan actually said after the race before you post.

Or - just post garbage, its well easy to spot!

Vettels being stiched up here.

Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot," a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance and animosity toward members of a group.

From Wikipedia, and accurately describes most of the comments that I have read today. Objectivity would fix that, but then some people would have to first admit that they are bigots, and by deffinition that will not happen.

I can't see how Vettel nor Horner can point the finger at Karthikeyan.Karthikeyan once Vettel had made the "pass" never moved, he stayed on his line nothing wrong with that.

the only reason Vettel was so annoyed was because he knew he was truly to blame and has to much pride to admit he was at fault and tried to used the Button incident with Karthikeyan of a way of saying

"Look he did it to Button and he did it to me"

FIA clearly didn't see the video and just went on the Word of Vettel and Redbull.

Check out Karthikeyan's article on autosport!

You would understand his and back marker's position!

These guys are not bad drivers are they are made out to be by media.

For eg. Senna sucked in HRT and now he is a hero?
Same for Maldanado - last year he crashed his car more than he actually lapped cars and now hes fast and wonderful?

WRT is a cucumber?!?!

I hate Narian but he was blameless in both incidents. Seb misjudged his overtaking move which could have happened against anyone. Vettel has nobody to blame but himself.
