I disagree with the penalty to Kobayashi. He was screwed out of a good finish today by Senna's reckless block attempt and then Massa.

Backwards thinking when a guy goes wide off the track, hits the car that's on the track on the proper line and doesn't get penalized... so stupid.

And no safety car when the marshals were retreiving Vettel's car just barely away from the racing line. Pathetically dumb. Exciting race and all but so many idiotic decisions made in it from all people.

What's going on with Race Stewards?
Maldonado got 20 sec penalty is joke.
Kobayashi got 5 grids penalty for racing accident.
Something is going on with race stewards.

Lulu pushed Maldonado off the track where was he supposed to go? Then when he came back onto the track Lulu gave him no room, in fact he moved left and hit him! At worst it was 50/50.

Good weekend for Lulu,

Block Rosberg in qualy, no penalty.

Ignore yellow flags in the race, no penalty.

Drive into Maldonado, no penalty.

That little outburst in Monaco last year certainly had the desired effect, the stewards are terrified of a repeat performance, maybe McLaren are too and that's why they sent TWO media advisers with him for his post race interview.

Glad they penalised Vergne - that was shocking. I suspect the second penalty was for showering the circuit with bits of STR when he drove way too fast back to the pits wits that level of damage.
