But richard NK didnt admit it was his fault!!!! You pointed out the Autosport article which you claim he admitted fault but in fact thats incorrect. And i quote "Although he (NK) said he was not to blame for either collision - and Button later took responsibility for his incident - Karthikeyan has expressed regret at what happened.

john. read the article again. nk said sorry to seb. nk said he went onto paint and had wheelspin. nk said he came back on to track, and vettel was there!

nk was also being shown blue flags.

the simple fact is that he caused an avoidable accident, was punished for it, and said sorry to seb.

to be that is a total admission.

richard, from what I saw, which is obviously not as much as the stewards, SV cut back onto the racing line a little bit too early. Something he has done before with much worse results.

If you ask if I have a problem with the stewards, I'd say I have a problem with a lot of things controlled by the FIA.

Angelina---A driver should not have to stay off the track to let the WC through if it is going to result in him crashing his car.Vettel needs to pay more attention to whats going on , give the car he's passing a little more room. This is not the first time he has done something like this , just ask his teammate.Red Bull need to fit some proximity sensors to his car so he knows where both ends of it actually are.

Here I agree with you. For me, any car being lapped should move off the racing line, rather than make the car lapping it move off the line. There should definitely be a ruling about this.

I would love to see Seb's n NK's faces when they were talking about d incident.

But i guess Seb Vettel might b milder since they were in Stewards office n NK received a penalty.

There is a ruling about this which all d drivers except NK follow.

Atleast this time he admitted his fault but shud have avoided d collision n was penalized 4 it. he lost nothing even after penalty but Seb lost 12 points.

In d incident with Villenue, Kartikeyan said I too am an F1 driver as if he has d right 2 race while being lapped although d rules say he hasn't.
