They should also give Perez a big penalty for his retarded torpedo style and taking out Kimi.
He even claimed in a postrace interview that is was Kimis fault, omfg.

someone. perez had nowhere to go. it was a brave move and kimi just did not see him. but it was a racing incident, and in case you did not notice, it was perez who came off worst.
perez is a fiery driver and a number of his moves deserve praise, as he caught others napping. starting to remind me of the sort of moves that senna made in his early career.

The move by Perez was not a racing incident. He had dive bombed several others, including Kimi, and they were forced to cut the chicane to avoid collecting him. On a previous occasion with Kimi, he also missed the chicane, that is how hot he entered the corner. In the final collision with Kimi, he made contact with Kimi's rear tire with his front as Kimi was taking his line. Totally the fault of Perez.
As for Romain, I question if he will last the season. I think he may be replaced for Canada, actually, if reports that he is on a three race probationary period by the team.

Being a "fiery driver" is no excuse for poor judgement or ruining somebody's race at a late stage.
If you review both moves Perez did on Kimi you can see that in both cases they were mad dives with no hope of getting ahead or making the corner. I agee that at first it looked like Kimi moved onto Perez's path but at a second look he was pretty much on the racing line and Perez had no business being where he was with no hope of overtaking.
It's a shame becuse both his moves on Alonso and Button were nothing but brilliant, but I'm convinced that he should be penalized for taking Kimi out.

If that is OK what Perez makes everyone can kamikaze to corner with out change to brake to apex. So from now on everyone will only try to force other people to cut chicane (like Alonso) becouse of kamikaze.

I don't like Alonso at all but that penalty cutting chinace becouse he had no room to in there was idiotic.

And that what Perez did to Kimi 3rd time shuold get Penalties to Perez to Canada.

Romain has been pressuring himself to hard....a bit like Felipe last year...sure,it will never be easy to have Raikkonen as a team mate...but if he can't let loose of that burden,things will only get worse.......his judgment was a terrible one,at least he has calmed down and not so crazy like Perez did......i'm sorry for Ricciardo and reckon he's got every reason to be upset.......anyway,placing a 10 grid penalty on him is unfair as it could be argued as racing incident.....if Romain is to get this penalty,then Perez and Chilton should get the same punishment as well.........

Kobayashi should have been driving in his seat this year. Grosjean is fast but way too crash prone, and it doesn't matter how many chances you give him, it's genetic, he'll keep on crashing. Come on Boullier, ditch him already. 4 crashes in one weekend? Give me a break.
