A lengthy ban BEFORE he kills someone would help, and also give the other drivers confidence that risking others will be punished.

He's pretty much destroyed Alonso's chance of the championship.

Disaster after disaster and if this guy keeps a seat in F1 wil be a miracle no matter what money he brings with him

Problem here is that there's a white line to mark pit lane entry that serves no purpose as they are all allowed drive over it and use the entry to straighten up the entry onto the start/finish straight.

So EVERYONE cuts it close to the wall so what NUMPTY wold think of going to undertake (not overtake) someone in a gap thats wasn't going to be there without fear of disastrous consequences ? Anyone remember the big crash there when someone sideswiped the protected wall into pit lane that has a few tires in front of it

TOO MANY CRASHES & INCIDENTS and luckily no ones ever been hurt

It isn't Romain's fault that HRT have a joke car. De La Rosa went from over the line on the right of the track to within a car width of the left wall under a blue flag.......clearly Grosjean's fault for recklessly trying to go flat out in qualifying and nothing to do with joke teams wasting space in F1 and ignoring blue flags...again.

70/30 Grosjean's fault IMO. He shouldn't expect HRT to vanish just because the car is slower. Blue flag means nothing if they are both on hotlaps.

On the other hand, DLR should by now be very aware that cars come past from all angles, so perhaps he takes some blame too.

Unfortunate, de la Rosa seemed to dive lately. At first glance, I really had the impression that he was leaving the door open and that's maybe what happened to Romain.

Sorry but I don't understand where Grosjean thought he was going to overtake.

The line he was taking, alongside another car (even a slower one) would have taken him into either the pits or the wall dividing the pit entry from the straight.

He's quick but his lack of foresight is still dangerous. I wouldn't be resigning him for 2013 if I was EB.
