You can see the level of maturity that Sutil possesses that led him to glass somebody. This is not the first time this season that he's deliberately got in Hamilton's way. I think that, especially in light of the repeat offending and the motivation behind doing it, this penalty is far too lenient. It should have been back of the grid at best for him.

Not least, I might add, because this offence had a serious impact on this year's championship. Had Hamilton made it to Q3, he would likely have qualified well and had a shot at the win. Now he has no chance, and his slim title challenge is effectively over. That is what Sutil's immature move today caused, so a 3 place penalty is about as pathetic as the 15k euro fine for Ferrari for installing and using a cheat mode in their car.

It does seem a light penalty for blocking but lets be honest here any trouble that Lulu has with Sooty is his own making.

And fanboys stop your snivelling about costing Lulu poles and wins, did Sooty make him drive through the gravel trap? For once Lulu was honest and admitted that he drove like an idiot yet you fools still try to blame someone else at least for once he didn't. Looks like there's some hope that Lulu can change his spots, sadly no chance of that happening among fanboys.
