  1. I don't blame Vettel for being pissed about the 5 second penalty in this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix that cost him the win, and there probably wasn't anything he could do to avoid the situation once it happened, but I feel like people are glossing over the fact that he made a mistake. He wouldn't have been in a position to get penalized if he hadn't lost control of his car. It doesn't really matter if it was the tires or something else - that's racing. People get penalized in sports all the time for stuff they didn't intend to do, but if you do make a mistake, that's kind of on you, Seb.

      Yeah, but mistakes are a part of racing, and at a certain point you have to let the race have a natural progression without too much outside influence.

       

      I see both sides of it. If you are an Indy or NASCAR fan the penalty looks dumb and the incident is just a normal part of racing. If you're an F1 guy, the penalty is technically by the book but a little harsh for a no harm no foul incident. He pinched Hamilton, but it wasn't like he was totally out of control. You should still be able to defend your position safely.

      I couldn't even watch the race because our local ABC station showed the stupid White Sox game.

      @jsneb83 next time that happens, try the ESPN app. Happens all the time in the DFW area when F1 is on the ABC affiliate and they choose to show something else instead because of...reasons. 

       

      As for Vettel, I do have a hard time sympathizing with him when he was on the right end of these decisions a couple of times during his run a few years ago. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, you're going to storm around like a petulant child and switch the place markers in front of the cars around?

      This was all because of Vettel's mistake, and I really have a problem with him returning to the racing line when he completely went off the course. He even admitted he saw Hamilton in his mirror on the broadcast, and that admission has to factor in to whether or not one views this as an 'out of control'/racing incident or Vettel trying to get away with something there.
