The way the rules are this year it has made the championship one of consistency even more than in years past. Grosjean has definitely been that, crap!!!

Grosjean just keeps making these mistakes, it is true. Whether it is just wrong place at the wrong time or a complete disregard for the other drivers I don't understand. Surely he would have learnt? No one would be this ignorant to the amount of reprimands he has received? In saying this, Alonso's squeeze on Kimi is basically what Grosjean did to Hamilton at Spa with a bit less ferocity. The difference being, it didn't end with cars flying over peoples heads. If say Kimi had almost taken Vettel's head off would we see Alonso banned for a race?

I was hoping he would get his **** together but, I don't know how anyone can continue to defend this guy after all his first lap incidents. Get Heikki in there and have someone who can contribute to the team before Grosjean does anymore damage.

This was a bigger brain fart than his Spa start. The outcome at Spa was far more dramatic is that why he was banned?
Webber could easily have been wiped out when facing the oncoming traffic, would that have resulted in another ban?
The penalty should be given for bad driving, not how dramatic the outcome is, the outcome is largely down to lady luck.

Sorry but feel Webber contributed to the incident by turning in tight -and not giving Gj room . Now doing the Aussie whinge. Wish Brundle would think before yakking - immediate response was just a racing incident then let's knock Grosjean. Later when Hamilton left the pits and almost had a coming together with Kimi that was Hamilton at his best! The position of the cars - both MW / RG and LH/KR was very similar yet ............

When watching the onboard - he just simply runs into the back of webber. He doesn't even react to the inevitable collision. Perhaps he does just have complete disregard for the other drivers?

@ MeymakTony - You're kidding right. Look at the replay.
Webber was clearly in front on the racing line and Grosjean was trying to get up the inside of Koby and slammed straight into Webber. Koby avoided Webber but Grosjean didn't even try to avoid Webber he just rammed him. How did Mark contribute to that. He was almost T-boned. Maybe Mark should grow eyes in the back of his head ???

Sorry to be a little petty Izy but it was Pirez not Kobasan. And if you look at the replay Roman brakes a lot later then the Sauber and the Red Bull. If I was the drivers I'd be getting in his face. He clearly has no awareness though, so I'd watch out his head doesn't make contact while telling him off!
