First of all, it's a very difficult scenario with mitigating circumstances. It's still being discussed over in the stewards office and I fully expect Pastor to be penalised.
What seemed to cause a heated altercation in the chatroom (and yes I am still a little offended... see my earlier post a few pages back), was that I feel the blame for the accident ITSELF lies entirely with Maldonado. Yes, he was run off road, but Pastor did EXACTLY the same to Kimi Raikkonen earlier in the race. Kimi had the sense to back out, and the crash was duly avoided.
When Pastor was put in the same position, which often happens with overtaking "attempts" such as these, he made a point of driving all over the off-road section and ploughing straight back onto the circuit. This was only ever going to result in a collision.
However, what upsets me more, is that Pastor is renowned for getting far too reckless in these heated battles, and Lewis should have taken this into account. His tyres were shot, and Maldonado had the pace. He was going to get by at some point, and I think Lewis was silly to try and prevent this. Sharing track-space with Maldonado will always end in tears, and he still went ahead and tried to tame him.
Following Sebastian Vettel's retirement, the WCC was looking good for McLaren. But now, it's worse than ever.
So in summary, Pastor was entirely to blame for the accident, but Lewis, I think, should've foreseen disaster as soon as the Williams was in his mirrors.

That's your first post??

Don't blame Maldonado for what happened it was Hamilton fault for not letting him pass knowing that his tires were gone for good. Not very smart for him. Being stubborn sometimes doesn't pays off. Instead of some very good points he got nothing.
Lol Maldonados dad has logged on to defend an idiot.

Did they say what happened to vettel's car yet?
They reckon it was altenator failure.
As was Grosjean's. Both made by Renault.
I feel another conspiracy thread coming on.....

Look at it this way if he did make it cleanly through he would have given the place back for cutting the corner. So no matter which way you look at it it's 100% Pastors fault.

Seriously, that was an eerie prediction. Kudos to you!
