Maldonado caused the crash by trying to rejoin the track over curb stones but Hamilton is just as guilty for what happened because he knew that Maldonado was there and refused to give an inch.
Hamilton tyres had gone off, he had no chance of blocking Maldonado to the flag, he forced the crash as much as Maldonado did!

@dave

so senna was just as guilty as Schumacher the other week when schu drove into the back of him. because he had a slower car and was on the track and was in the way. get a grip, you said it yourself there was no way hamilton was keeping that position and lewis has said that himself so why do some so stupid as to join the track with a car right in front of you. it was intended!

Was getting pelters on the other thread for suggesting Lewis should have used his head and let him go as he WOULD have lost the position anyway. That's the point Twitmarsh is trying to make.

I think if you read between the lines, this is Martin Whitmarsh saying "Maldonao is absolutely a loose canon who should be given a wide berth". My first instinct when this happened during the race was "Maldonado just rammed Lewis". I mean, c'mon, the guy has a history of using a multi-million dollar race car as a battering ram when he gets the least bit frustrated or perceives himself to have been wronged. I think he needs to sit out a race or two next time this happens. Williams deserves better than this guy.

'Sometimes you have to lose a.battle to win the war' springs to mind. Grosjean passed him earlier in the race at the same spot, both survived because they both gave each other space, Maldonado went off the road 'to avoid contact' from the sliding McLaren and had an incident of his own, unlike Raikkonen who backed out of moves on both Williams, Alonso diced with everyone but gave them room, Scumacher and Webber came through the field but looked after there cars.

If you watch GP2 you will see that the same thing happens with the Venezuelans racing GP2 they don't really care they go for it do or die even when there's less than half a chance. so many crazy crashes in GP2 by these guys Maldonado was the same like them when raced in GP2. And do you know why they don't care? They are racing with free money free pass from Chavez who must be very proud because his drivers are taking down the "empire" drivers. In the end of they day these Venezuelan drivers have nothing to lose I'm pretty sure if Sir Frank went to Maldonado and asked him to be more patient he would tell Sir Frank to shut up because he's paying the bills. Big shame!

If Hamilton had needed just a point or two to win WDC, would he still drive the same? He is indeed a quick driver, but needs to use his head. Alonso always maximises car potential, and thinks!!!!
