vettel is 2 times world champions. When this avoidable accident happen to him,we do feel his frustration,we as spectator following this race, feel the same,my brother even react strongly,comment even worse than vettel has done.
If I am you, Narian, i would understand his reaction & say sorry for ruining his race, & points for champonship fight. The whole is very simple, no need for you to add salt & create story for the media.

I may be commenting out of turn here but from what I remember, Narain didn't turn into Vettel. Sebastien seemed too eager to take up his racing line and moved over too early ( in other words didn't seem to know he wasn't fully passed the HRT ).
My view is Seb should take it as a racing incident and move on...

The incident on Sunday was stupid, and both were at fault, in my opinion. But, Narain would not be racing if it were for merit, as he is only there because of the Indian money brought in by his father and other sources that want to promote Indian Motorsport. He and his car are a mobile chicane, and should be at the 105% or 103% rule.

Vettel is a disgrace and a bad ambassador for RedBull. his behaviour was unacceptable for a World Champion and a sportsman. He behaved like a spoiled child..calling other people names. I used to think he was a nice guy but that was just his face for the media. I have lost total respect for this boy and he is really a very unpleasant individual. Feeling frustrated does not give him the right to call another fellow driver an idiot. In fact, Vettel is the idiot himself. He has a much faster car, better handling and could easily have avoided running into Narain. Vettel just isn't a very good driver when he does not have the best car. Vettel should apologize for his remarks and the media should not let him off so easily.

@ Ray

Yes the circumstances surrounding the incident were stupid but no excuse for unexcusable bad sportsmanship on Sebs behalf.

Sportsman do things in the heat of the moment but in reality through experience Seb should know better.

As for the stewards hearing after the incident I reckon more weight would have been thrown behind Vettels version than Karthikeyan due to Sebs stance in the sport

From where I was sitting it seemed pretty clear that Vettel moved over too soon after passing NK. It was his own fault and he needs to grow up - we saw similar nonsense when he infamously took himself out by clashing with Webber. He can't be regarded as a great driver until he learns how to accept his own mistakes.

F1 should start doing what they do in Cricket - fine drivers for unprofessional behaviour. In cricket if you get out of turn and behave badly against umpire or other players, he is fined a percentage of match fee. Do the same here!
