There have been a special set of rules that apply to Seb now that he has been dominating F1 for a few years. They don't want him to dominate the way Schumi did 10 years ago. I guess its all about TV ratings and money.

googol. that comment does not befit you. it has nothing to do with any leaning towards a driver or not, (which i dont hae). the simple fact is that button pushed seb off the track. there was NO space available for seb to finalize his move. he had to accellerate on the PAINTED surface, which does not have he same level of grip as the track, so seb was even more compromised. i agree that there is a witch hunt against seb and/or red bull, led by one team in particular. some of the "established" teams see rbr as a newcomer, and not entitled to shake up the pecking order. but in the end, quality will shine through, hopefully.

Richard...I do think you're on a bit of a loser this time. If Jenson's tyres were that gone, then surely SV gives back the place and its even easier to pass next time around.
Part of the responsibilty must lay with Horner, he should have been straight on the radio saying give the place back.
Also, I'm no Hamilton fan but, its a bit rich that SV blames a much faster car from passing him, and yet he feels agrieved when he messes up a pass with a faster car than JB's.

A very unfair decision.There is no logic .It is absurd .At best they should have swapped places with jenson.Considering hamilton's unfair move which was to help Jenson close on vettel Jenson and Mclaren should have been penalized.Looks like some one is against vettel and RBR.

The difference is that Jenson did not swerve violently towards Vettel in an attempt to ram him into a wall, he just held his line or is that deemed to be illegal against Vettel?
