Amigo Perez was arrogant and over confident when he over taken Ricciardo car. The crash with Ricciardo car is his mistake but he never confess his fault.
Perez is fast driver but he needs more experience. He has always trouble when he over taken because he couldn't right guessing and decision on his car length and speed compare to other car. It's shame he should have score some points for Sauber. Perez takes many risk when he over taken. He and Manldonado are same but he has more luck than Maldonado.
Indian GP's Buddh Track is boring and FIA should fix the track to suit over taken as much as possible.

Mark Gillan, Williams chief operations engineer said
"Pastor's race effectively finished when he picked up a rear puncture when Kobayashi made contact with him in Turn Five on Lap 31".
His comment look like Kamui Kobayashi fault.
Even Martin Brandal said on BBC, Pastor Maldonado made mistake by move to Kamui Kobayashi side.
Today F1 drivers less of taken responsibility make too many crashes in this year. Obviously, Pastor Maldonado try to block Kamui Kobayashi from re-over taken him but his car was not cleared yet.
FAI should send drivers who graduated from GP2 to F1 driver education camp in end of the year, especially, Pastor Maldonado and Romain Grosjean.

umm, so obviously you cant pay attention...

Pastor was in the lead, Kamui tries to pass (like he always does before he takes someone out)

Kamui takes up position behind Pastors car, and does not leave enough room for Pastor, Kamui is almost right behind Pastor at this point.

At no time was Kamui challenging for position, Kamui had full control of his car when he caused an avoidable collision.

There is no doubt that Kamui is at fault, but because his contract is on the line people are willing to look away again, at a driver who consistently takes other drivers out.

Time to fire KK, hes either stupid or malicious.

Quit over-reacting. Kobayashi was sandwiched inbetween 2 Williams, he wasn't moving to overtake as nobody overtakes at that corner, simply going for the racing line when he clipped Maldonado.

Stewards saw it as a racing incident, if Kobayashi had made a real move at that stage(which would have been silly) and caused the same accident, they would have penalized him.
