Pretty sure, it's been Hamilton acting like a baby, this year...

Pretty sure, Hamilton isn't complaining this time because he benefitted from this decision.

Pretty sure, you aren't a Vettel fan, eh?

Apparently, the only one that makes "honest" mistakes isn't Vettel...

Always happy to read your perspective!

Sure, I have a total bias for anything Ferrari and a total bias against anything Hamilton.
That being said, I also agree that if the shoe were on the other foot, the stewards would
have ignored this "infraction" and called it a racing incident by a real racer...

Give me a flippin' break... does he need any more advantages other than the tires,
the engine, the team writing rules... and the list goes on and on and on.........

Happy Ferrari is contesting this particular ruling.
Not that they will reverse it; but, for the sport,
it's important that one team/driver isn't obviously
a favourite with the FIA...

Of course Vettel returned to the track in a deliberate way to prevent LH to pass him. Just watch the action and you would see how he is aiming to close passage. And of course he did a childish move crying like a baby. Don't be racist. LH deserved it, he would easily pass him on track if SV didn't try to cheat.

You have the right to your opinion, but let's not start calling people racist, nothing racist has been said in thread, unless you believe that calling a driver out racist? Hamilton has been just as whiny as Vettel, or any other F1 driver, they all cry when things are not going their way, it's always been this way, just that in recent years, we are hearing more team radio, which highlights it.

Totally ridiculous that you bring this down to race.
We have nothing more to discuss.
