This just in, you can now race track cars, anywhere thats not a track. Teams fault, they should have seen it and told him to cede the place, and then passed him again fair and square.

Overtaking is meant to be a piece of beautiful car mastery, not hope and pray

Clear case of cheating again and the drs is only supposed to operate when it goes past the signal so how was he using it anytime he wanted this needs to be investigated im thinking may explain why sometimes they have pace and sometimes not

I have always been an Alonso fan but he kinda frustrating these past few races. As if he is not trying hard enough or he just lost his Mojo. With his pace he could easily be on the podium but unlike Grosjean he lack the will to win. Yes Grosjean is kinda hard on passing but that is what it is about, to race hard for podiums and wins. Wish Alonso would show his ruthless nature back when he was racing Kimi in Schumi in 2005 and 2006.

I just want to mention Vettel being pathetic in the last two laps, so desperate that when Kimi closed the door and gave Vettel enough room he still complained and even ask the team to tell that to Charlie, what a pathetic boy, can't pass so he wants Kimi to bent over by the orders of charlie. Grosjean deserve that podium sissy boy.

Grosjean is a racer and is learning where the limit is, as every young driver should. There are a lot of people who want to criticise him when he pushes the envelope too far, those people would not have been able to contain themselves when Senna drove since with him if he wasn't pushing the envelope he wasn't racing.

Great to hear that from Massa, someone that respects a good overtake. I'm annoyed Grosjean got the penalty as his move was ambitious and pulled off well and that's what we want to see in Formula 1. If people get done for these moves then we'll see less of them in future, I believe he was borderline with all four wheels over the track.

First of all, the move Grosjean put on Massa was awesome - but it was completed with 4 wheels off the track. The drive through penalty was a damn shame, but correct.

Second of all, the incident with Button was 100% Grosjeans fault, no doubt about it. Button can't just make his car disappear. He was on the EXTREME outside limit of the track and could not go anywhere else. Romain just didn't realize that the track narrowed as much as it did at that point. He admitted to this and claimed responsibility.

Having said that, in no way shape or form do I think it should have resulted in a penalty for Grosjean. This was a racing incident, nothing more. Sure, they touched, but neither of them sustained any damage and both continued in the positions they were in. Why the hell was he given a penalty????
