I don't think (I hope at least) that no one is asserting that he was obliged to... However, it would have been sensible to do so, he said this himself, that he ended up in a place he didn't really want to be. Hamilton cutting across – no he wasn't meant to predict that in any way, Hamilton took himself out there. That said, Kamui was in a pretty silly place.

It did not gain him time
It put his own race at risk
he did not know if Hamilton was aware of him and gave himself and hamilton no breathing space to go .just not very clever.
Hamilton obviously is to blame ,no question did he judge the situation wrong but kamui had given in anyways why make it tight in that situation...

And you don't see it as normal for drivers to re-take the racing line after defending? That's pretty much the done thing for all times when the driver defending thinks the job is done because the other person is too far back.
Kamui should have seen that the job was done, and lifted a little... Hamilton certainly shouldn't have assumed that the job was done.

If the job was genuinly done, then there would have been no need for Kamui to lift.
Lewis needs to sit down and watch the last few years of Alonso's greatest overtaking hits to learn how to overtake without driving into the other car!

One expects rookies like Maldonado to have moments like that, but not someone with Hamilton's talent, experience, and much faster car on an otherwise open track. Curious isn't it?
