Crazy to me, after basically 23 hours, 55 minutes, the race was decided on the last lap.

Vettel should get a ban for that.

 

Thoroughly entertaining race though.

If you watch the replay he didn't purposely turn into him...

Looked intentional to me. I'm also surprised no black flag or race ban. Hamilton brake checking not deserving a penalty also sets a bad precedent

I'm surprised he didn't get black flagged for the side by side bump... that did look intentional. The brake check... even then, Hamilton slowed, but Vettel might've been too close? dunno. That one is a tough call, but the intentional bit... odd.

 

That race was all over the place.

Apparently stewards have said no brake check. Maybe they were shown telemetry that no brake pressure was registered during that point. F1 cars at full speed generate about 1g decel from aero drag so it is possible that Vettel was caught out by Hamilton lifting. As for slowing down the grid behind the SC, Seb used to do that all the time at RBR, so he is the last person to have the right to complain about it.

But seriously scrappy race for F1. Practically a GP2 race out there..

Looked intentional from most angles and very intentional from the head on shot.

I'm mainly going by the in car view, it doesn't look like he intentionally turns into him.

He didn't turn into him per se. But he didn't try to avoid the collision either.  He got hot-headed and decide to road-rage..not cool in any way, considering the data that LH didn't brake check him.  Vettel lost the race for himself because the headrest issue would've put Vettel firmly in the lead.

I think the race looked scrappy because the guys are pushing at the limit again...I'm really loving the new generation of tires & cars.  More mistakes happen when you're at your physical limits.
