Vettel, an amazing talent but what an immature twerp, carries on like a pork chop every time things don't go his way, should learn a few professionalism tips from his team mate, imagine his face if he gets punted in Brazil

HRT aren't even racing anyone. They only positions they gain are from retired cars, assuming they don't retire themselves. If someone's coming, tell the drivers to get well out of the way. Especially in that first sector, where HRT themselves commented beforehand on it being potentially problematic with backmarkers. I don't care if the only way to do it is to go off-roading. You're HRT. YOU DON'T MATTER.

Its not so easy to just get out of the way. Even if they are off the pace. Secondly, its the teams responsibility to help their driver with the traffic. In most cases the lead driver can use it to his advantage.

For everyone claiming the HRT was nowhere near in the way, you're just hunting for excuses to hate on Vettel. The HRT most certainly was in the way. You're underestimating just how pathetically slow the HRT is, and Narain only had to hold Vettel up for a fraction of a second to ruin it for Vettel. I recall Webber at Catalunya coming up on an HRT and locking the brakes to stop in time for an HRT that had practically parked on a corner.

That said, while I say Narain ruined it for Vettel, I mean more that he just gave it away on Vettel's behalf. They were both pretty much at the same pace, but I suspect (not really sure why) that Hamilton would have eventually managed to set it up well enough to make the DRS move stick anyway. It's just a shame the Narain the moving chicane ended that battle prematurely.
