@Ptolomy
You say Karthikeyan almost killed Nico?

You must either one eye blind or completely bonkers to not get whose head was going to be chopped off in that incident...Although a racing incident I feel Nico could have judged it better in terms of line he took if not slowing down in time

I don't think NK slowed Seb down too much...its actually unlucky that he caught up with HRT in narrowest and tightest part of the circuit.

I think Lewis had nothing to lose and Seb had a lot, else he could have surely tried to take back that place as he had a lot of laps to have a go.

As far as reactions go, I can understand Seb being unhappy but he needs to mature to express it w/o screaming like a little girl

pizza. look at the lap charts. seb lost 2 seconds. the gherkin had been shown a number of blues, and the track was not narrow at that point. twisty and fast, yes, but it would have been possible to stay on one side. compare it to di resta, who came to a near standstill to let the two cars past.

@Richard

I am supporting Seb too but as you have raised the point, for a change compare where Di Resta lands at checked flag with where his teammate does!

You cant forget that everyone is running their own race even its in the slowest and least reliable car. Do you recall? even schumi was show blue flags!
Its sure must not be easy as it looks to firstly decide to prioritize others race over yours and then execute it

May be F1 cars should get a feature they have been missing all this time -- A HORN! You little Elf? are ya listening?
