I see something different from perez in macca than in sauber.... look like getting more arrogant... compare to lewis first season with alonso. .. they almost the same but lewis scored podium and win..... Checo. ..should focus more in maiden his podium and win than do something people called stupid action

It was definitely Perez to blame. He was fortunate it hadn't happened earlier. That gap was inevitably going to run out. Other drivers will eventually say enough is enough, you ain't barging through here. Maybe next time he'll be a little more cautious. The only reason it worked previous to that was because Alonso didn't want an also ran to take him out. Personally I think he's a little inexperienced to have a seat at McLaren, he hasn't earned it just yet. He's trying to hard to prove himself, and he'll end up looking stupid and unpopular.

Martin Whitmarsh is partly to blame, he's letting his driver of with this (as is the Stewards), got to get that Telmex sponsorship in at all costs eh Martin.

On a more positive note their pace seems a bit stronger.

As others have said there the only reason there wasn't an accident earlier is that the other two drivers had reasons for not wanting to be taken our. Jensen because running your team mate into the wall is frowned upon and Alonso because he is playing the long game.

But all of those moves were made from a point where he knew he was not going to pass.

The move in Kimi was a joke - he was barely at the back wheel of the lotus at the point of turn in and should not have been in that position.

I did love though that Jensen ended his race by overtaking him at the pit entrance. I don't normally cheer a retirement, but here it was just so poetic!

Perez comments....That was a real shame, I'd overtaken both Jenson and Fernando there, and Jenson had overtaken me there too, but I couldn't have avoided the crash with Kimi...

That last bit just shows how delusional Perez is saying i couldn't have avioded the crash with Kimi. What a load of BS...

I've watched F1 since mid 70's and have seen this kind of drivers appear now and then, where they try to fit in a waaay to big shoe. In the old days they usually left the sport in a black bag, but today it's normally just the carbon fibre and points that get the punishment. Also, isn't it quite interesting that the only other accident in that part of the circuit was the doing of the ? Yes, accidents can and will happen in F1 but, as this is supposed to be the pinnacle of motorsport, there have to be some sort of standard among the participants. Be it drivers, team managers or stewards.
