The Vettel/Kubica incident – Who was at fault?

This was an unfortunate incident. Both drivers were on a for a brilliant result today. A podium for both of these drivers would have been a brilliant result. Kubica even had a chance of challenging Jenson Button for the win is he was on the prime tyre at the time.

These are two very keen young guns who didn’t want to yield their position, and therefore collided.

I have watched the replay alot of times now, and I would say Kubica was more at fault. He simply didn’t give Vettel enough room. Vettel has nowhere else to go other than to hit Kubica. The only other place Vettel could have gone to was onto the grass.

Vettel’s 10 place penalty for the Malaysian GP next weekend is extremely harsh. Losing 3rd place today I feel is already a big enough punishment.

The race stewards shouldn’t give a penalty every time two cars make contact with each other. These guys are racing each other very hard, and sometimes they will collide with each other.

That is racing!!
