F1 » F1 POLL: Does Grosjean deserve a one-race ban?


Romain Grosjean has been handed a one-race ban following his part in the massive multi-car accident at the start of the 2012 F1 Belgian Grand Prix. But has he been treated fairly?

NO !!! I have seen other drivers do similar over the years and not be punished if the FIA are not carefull you are going to have a grid of 24 cars to frightened to overtake for fear of punishment.....

Plus if you want better driving get some talent in the cars that are filled with pay as you go drivers and we might see some proper racing right down the field instead of a load of talentless rich boys!!!

Too much inconsistency by stewards, Lulu drove into half the drivers on the grid last year and just got reprimands or soft penalties. Maldonado has had a few crashes this season one of them even deemed intentional, no ban for him.
The crash was Grosjean's fault but I've seen drivers do far worse and get off with a reprimand or a grid penalty.

Technically it was his fault, but overall it was a racing accident. This just happens. I suppose it was not his intention, he'd surely like to finish the race, instead of crashing.

It wasn't a good move. I don't know what you've been watching but the last time I saw something like that was US GP 2006. Montoya kicked off a huge accident through an error of judgement and he walked away from the sport. That should have been a ban if he hadn't have gone.

I am not sure wether it is good to ban a driver...

Yes, it has happened before with Grojean but I think F1 should reconsider their penalty rules. People should get an reprimand and maybe a fine but racing is racing, and yes, it is dangerous and accidents do and always will happen.
