lewis you idiot
lewis you idiot
more like Maldonado was the idiot, wasn't on the track!
Points wise I think Lewis should have just let Pastor pass
Such a shame

Maldonado wasn't on the track, Hamilton had every right to be there and defend that line.
at point of contact he was 3/4s on the track lewis will have known his rears were cooked and he knew he would lose the position.
All the same, Maldonado had to re-enter the track, Hamilton had the line. You wouldn't do it in the real world. We will see what the stewards say though!
ahh wrong Lewis = i clicked on , thinking it was about a Police Detective ......... l.o.l. ......
looked like martonado's fault to me. terrible race, bad track.
edit: just watched the incident again on bbc player, not so sure anymore.
probably will go down as racing incident.
This is not required where the car returning to the track is aware the other car or cars are being given observant flags (ie blue, white, or red, or black)
There were no flags, so does not apply, as well as some other minor such rules
Sadly all Maldonado receieved was a Drive Thru penalty; 20 seconds added to race end time
Vergne has come off the worst, with a 10 place grid drop at next race (plus fine)

right, maldo has indeed picked up a 20sec penalty (missed that, if that was said during the race on BBC): -
"Williams driver Pastor Maldonado has been penalised for causing the collision that took Lewis Hamilton out of the European Grand Prix.
The Venezuelan was given a 20-second penalty, which drops him from 10th to 12th place and out of the points." (BBC, 2012)
