The cause of the crash is pretty straightforward according to the report. Schumacher simply braked too hard and over-did it. It is JE Vergne I feel sorry for. Had this happened to Schumacher (Schu got taken out by another driver) years ago when he was winning (many flawed races), there would've been war from Schu.

10 place grid penalty!. That is harsh. The reason apparently because he has done it before. Fair enough, but he has already been punished for the previous incident, so this is in effect a double penalty.

I never saw him "jog over to apologise" to Vergne, he stood next to his car and Vergne approached him and was very calm considering (how hard) he was hit from behind

I do believe that something could have happened to schumi's car though? either way though another 2 cars out of the race.

Reliability can't be taken for granted anymore and seems to be making as big a difference to the championship recently as these offs have.

That's too bad MS. Another incident. I think your mistake was coming back to F1 with Mercedes. If you were ever offered Ferrari before you came back then man you made a big mistake! Hell, Force India would've probably been a better choice than that team.
