Easy pick today.
Easy pick alright, the guy who forced the pole sitter
and race leader into an error and then won the race.
What is your proof that Hamilton forced Vettel into an error?
I'll take Lewis' word for it.

And the penalty was a joke.
No, you are, as always, the joke.
'I think the function of the stewards is to penalize flagrantly unsafe
moves not honest mistakes as result of hard racing. What happened at
Canadian Grand Prix is not acceptable at this level of our great sport.'
'For me, it's a racing incident. You can’t just stop the car and stay
off the circuit.'
'So close. Closed it well by Vettel, to me that’s racing. No penalty.
End of message.'
'my observation on Vettel rejoining: his helmet moved to look into
mirror only after steering correction! that he slid that far is laws of
physics. No space for Lewis is name of game with street tracks. What
happened to 'let them race' ? Was it sketchy? yes! a penalty? not in my
All of them are F1 drivers.
Two of them are world champions.
Oh, and BTW, in 2016 at the Monaco Grand Prix, after Hamilton had gone
off track, got it back on, and consequently had lost drive off the
chicane, he DELIBERATELY drove towards the wall to prevent Riccardio
'Very very http://embarrassing.No joy in watching this race ,two
champions driving brilliantly,will end in a false result.'
Make that THREE F1 world champions.
And another F1 driver (who ran at the front even if he didn't win a WDC):
'Any of the stewards ever raced at the front in F1? Didn’t watch the
race.. have now seen the “incident”.
And an F1 driver and three-time LeMans winner:
'Not really sure what VET could have done differently when
rejoining....with the momentum he had he was always going to end up
where he did....tough decision for VET.'
And ANOTHER F1 champion:
'Thanks for all your votes. My personal view is that he could have left
more room, but we lost a great final few laps because of the penalty.
There was enough doubt to let them carry on. Remember Dijon!'
He's a little more measured, but still clearly against the penalty.
