@iain - try read the article first instead of posting a comment based on the headline. Vettel did not ignore the yellow lights/flags - he passed a green flag before passing Vergne. This is completely within the rules. Get over it.

What nobody seems to notice is that all the cars are doing the same speed except the Toro Rosso - I'm sure telemetry will show he has slowed down to let him by, plus has dropped back 10 car lengths.

iain - HE DID NOT PASS UNDER YELLOW THERE WAS A GREEN FLAG AFTER THE YELLOW FLASHING LIGHT BEFORE THE GREEN FLASHING LIGHT AND BEFORE THE POINT AS WHICH THE PASS WAS MADE... and yes I am shouting.

Why don't people bother reading up on things before posting silly coments!

red bull could have avoided all this mud slinging if team mate number 4 of vettel was not quite so eager to slow down and get out of way.

Basically for all this mess I would say that was Hulkenberg's fault, if he didn't hit Hamilton
he would be first or second , Button 3th and Alonso 4th without any chance to try to play dirty games.

Bazzle - I think maybe you need to seek some help for that anger management problem. I don't particularly like Crofty's commentary either, but that's maybe going a bit overboard.

As for Vettel/Senna, Senna came from a long way back to try make that move. We saw Kimi send himself way off to avoid causing an incident. In a race start situation with so many cars around so close together, trying a massive dive like that was probably stretching it.

Why is it so hard for some people here to accept that Vettel's overtake was perfectly legal. There is VERY clearly a flag marshall waving a green flag before Vettel starts his move. People are making ridiculous claims based on the original blurry video footage that was posted.

From in-car Vettel would have had a much clearer view of the lights and flag in question. The FIA have clarified that the flag waved by a marshall takes precedence over the lights.

I feel like I have stumbled into lala land after reading the comments posted.
