"Normally, nine times out of ten, it would be the car on the outside
that ended up getting turned around."
And then a minute later:
"Will they perceive that Hamilton squeezed Vettel?"
So Brundle's first feeling is that it was Hamilton's fault.
"Gave him a fair old whack, didn't he. That is why it pendulumed round
then. He took a whack on his left... ...on his right front axle there."
This during the first replay that shows Vettel's in-car view.
So the moment Brundle sees what actually took place in the way of
contact, he understands why it was that Vettel's car went around and not
And finally he says this:
"Vettel got some understeer. I need to see that again. That looks like
six of one, half a dozen of the other. Vettel's front was
sliding—understeering—across the track... ...not steering enough.
Hamilton pinched... but it... ...he left him some racing space. I think
that'll be a racing incident."
Pity some of you stopped listening after the first comment.
But now some of you are smarter than Brundle...
...and the FIA...
