I suspect the stewards awarded Massa the penalty this time as while its debatable who was at fault in F1 while you can sometimes pass with DRS/Kers, sometimes you have to try make passes on brakes and there seems to be a situation developing these days where on passes on inside are always defended by cutting the other driver attempting the pass off. Of course this leads to collisions were in days gone by drivers would have left the room and attempted to get the better drive off the corner. Once you have a wheel or even nose alongside then then the other driver should be seen to leave room but of course they can compromise the passing drivers ideal line by only giving them what they need to avoid a collision ie Massa would have had the wide line out of the corner if after the apex they'd still been alongside each other.
