Shame as he was having a good race this time around after having other drivers wreck it in Valencia a couple weeks ago. It cost him a good points finish today.

It's so frustrating being a Kamui fan. He has had a run of bad luck and should have at least twice as many points as he has now. This was a mistake of his own though, he was over-eager to make his strategy work when he should have kept calm in the pits.

I don't understand the fine however. I think the FIA/Stewards are just trying to make money. I could understand if it was a racing incident like Pastors.

The driver turns to Passenger when wheels lock up.
So Kamui can do nothing. However he took responsible for that accident and good on Kamui.
He has been unlucky this year so far.
I hope his day will come.
