F1 POLL: Does Grosjean deserve a one-race ban?

Romain Grosjean has been handed a one-race ban following his part in the massive multi-car accident at the start of the 2012 F1 Belgian Grand Prix. But has he been treated fairly?
Lotus driver Romain Grosjean will be forced to sit out the 2012 F1 Italian Grand Prix as a result of cutting in front of Lewis Hamilton at the start of the race in Spa.

But is that fair? Has he been treated in line with how other drivers have been penalised by the race stewards? Did he deserve the penalty or all or was it just a racing accident?

Or perhaps this is just the latest inexcusable mistake by a driver who is becoming rather too accident-prone since returning to F1 at the start of 2012, and he needs to be taught a lesson?

It's your decision: CLICK HERE to head to the special Crash.net poll and let us know how you think the situation should have been handled, and who is to blame for the frightening and scary events at the start of the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Too much inconsistency by stewards, Lulu drove into half the drivers on the grid last year and just got reprimands or soft penalties. Maldonado has had a few crashes this season one of them even deemed intentional, no ban for him. The crash was Grosjean's fault but I've seen drivers do far worse and get off with a reprimand or a grid penalty.
