I feel very bad for Hulk. He makes an error and because its precious lewis that he hits he gets an instant unnecessary penalty. He shouldnt have even been racing him, if it wasnt for the safety car. But what brilliant skill in such conditions. Button was lucky this happened, as Hulk had already put a move on him earlier...

Exactly the kind of stupid penalties that irritates me, I really hope it's not a sign of the things to come in F1 racing.

One day someone will get penalised because he spun and harmed the barrier or even the grass...

FIA really does everything to help Ferrari. Maldonado penalty on the grid, Safety car to let Alonso catch up with the leaders and finally giving Hulkenberg a drive through, I've never seen a penalty coming that fast before.

It was great to watch him fighting with the Macs. He had Button's number, and seemed to have Hamilton's too. He saw an opportunity with the traffic, went for it and then slid on the wet part offline. I don't really see how that can be a penalty...

On another note, if Grosjean or Maldonado had turned in to another car at the point where Vettel came across Senna, would the outcome have been the same? I don't think so...

Not sure sure reversing into the race leader off the apex is a racing incident, the has to be some semblance of control and hulk didn't have any using another racer for a berm is for the junior championships. An amateur mistake from a driver who couldn't the situation. Hopefully if he finds himself in a similar situation, however doubtful he'll attempt to do it with the car facing forward and some semblance of where he was going. It's laughable to suggest a car spinning widly out of control is a racing incident. Maybe in touring cars??

And locking up and ploughing into the caterham and or lewis was a much better outcome? It clearly wasn't deliberate, why would it be? On slick tyres on a wet part of track it's an easy mistake to make, it looked like hulk braked 20ft too late or something, so maybe 0.3 seconds too late to make the corner without unsaveable oversteer and the rear kicking out. Defo did not deserve a drive through. People have said mistakes should be punished but at what point does someone decide a mistake is just that and let go? Surely the loss of a potential win is punishment enough without everyone jumping on the guy. Great race though, didn't know who to cheer on most, vettel, lewis or hulkenberg!
