Err, Richard, I think you'll find that when DC was held up by Bernoldi at Monaco they were both on the same lap. Nothing has changed, blue flags were in use back then too, but Bernoldi shouldn't have been shown them.

SV should make a statement clarifying what he understood the situation to be and at the same time, he should seriously consider apologizing for his outburst. Sounds like NK was following the rules as laid out by CW before the race, in a brand new track. I must admit, I at first was saying, there goes Karthikeyan again, why is he in F1? But now I must say I'm glad NK said this and respect him a bit more now after this.

In case if you didn't see d news. Here it is
Christian Horner has blamed HRT's Narain Karthikeyan for costing Sebastian Vettel what he believes would have been a victory in the United States Grand Prix.

Ar you saying that rbr cab say anything and coz hrt nd nk are in a smaller team, they hv no right to speak?

When it comes to vettel, you do put on rose colored glasses..

zib. yeah, i heard the news. what horner said was that catching up on a backmarker (nk) and being delayed, cost seb the win. and that is totally correct. the media are the ones who made it out that horner blames nk. there is a big difference. seb lost 2 secs behind nk, and this put lulu in a passing position.
had vettel not caught up on nk at that point, or had nk pulled over, who knows what would have happened?

and it has nothing to do with supporting one driver or another. had it been alonso who was held up, or lulu, allowing seb to pass them, i would be saying exactly the same.

"The 'cucumber' incident wasn't his fault. Vettel cut across his path too early.. "

It seems that 100% of crash dot net commenters agree with you. However, the stewards felt differently and they penalized Karth in that incident. I know whose opinions I take seriously.

I think most are commenting and offering their support to NK on the basis that CW's instructions were very clear in the driver briefing.
How can he be at fault for following the instructions all drivers had been given? He can't.
And just to offer a modicum of support for SV as i have already posted elsewhere, i would love to see any of you react any better in that circumstance...he is a human being, not a robot, let's cut him a bit of slack too.
We expect our sports stars to be perfect all the time (well some do), this isn't a realistic expectation of anyone....even the Dalai Lama isn't perfect lol
