Well SV just had the chocker of race weekends not many could top and i guess this openalty is the cherry on top. I must say his observed behaviour was a tad erratic. In Qually his raised hands at MW when posting times. OK MW was in front and looked to be holding him up but i am sure in those conditions it was an easy thing to do, but to gesture at your own team mate. Then when LH was unlapping himself and clearly the faster car with better tyres, he gestures him again, so SV would expect a driver to yield because he himself is slower and in front? Then the cherry at thenend, making a 2 lane corner 4 lanes wide..Bravo! Maybe SV has quietly changed his last name to Ecclestone? Has the search party found MW yet?

Vettel & Hamilton were complete opposites

Vettel trying to win anyway possible, even going off track.

Lewis trying to get off track anyway possible. "Let's just retire"

Only one of the two was a racer in Germany. Not good for contract negotiations Lewis.

@ fish fingers
So were most of all the front runners... that's my point.
They might not have passed anyone but clearly had an advantage in speed or sing their tyres which in the end is a better lap time and eventually getting closer to your opponent and pass...
So ...or all drivers are penalized that went off track or none..

Funny thing this, we want more overtaking and Vettel overtakes but is punished. How was this different from Hamilton on Rosberg earlier this season?

Talking about Hamilton, how great is this guy?! Hes a lap down but still is fighting at the front!!! The man is a genius!!!
