Sebastian Vettel couldn't be bothered by anyone today as he started from pole and led every single lap in this race to secure a perfect result at the Singaporean GP. As Jenson Button finished second and Mark Webber third, Vettel will have to wait until Japan to be sure of his world championship title.

It was just a "misjudgement" from Alonso but now is a stupid mistake for Hamilton and on top of that deserving an investigation AND a penalty? Lewis have done mistakes this year but i fail to see how this incident deserved a penalty.
I think they both got 20 seconds added. Hamilton for changing direction twice when defending, something Schumacher did last race a whole lot worse and got no penalty. Figures... He lost points. Alonso got 20 secs too but lost nothing. A joke really.
joke was what happened last year in Valencia. Fred followed the SC rules and finished 9th. LH deliberately overtook the SC, got a penalty something like 20 laps later and lost nothing.
The difference is LH was punished inside the race so they had no way of knowing if he could overtake again the cars that passed him or make up lost time. Alonso got an after the race penalty that made no difference. Also LH barely missed the SC, Alonso (and you and other haters) was just bitter he couldn't realistically try to make it through too.

Maybe I shouldn't take Singapore as an example for his maturity then, but everywhere else he admitted his faults which was refreshing to see.
I feel if Hamilton did the same he would get a totally different perception.
When did Schumacher ever admit his faults? When he parked his car on last turn in Monaco or when he crashed into other cars on purpose? Or ever really?
Besides Hamilton said it was his fault last race when he touched Kobayashi so there goes your theory out the window. Again, confirmation bias.
Being fighty are you? After Schumacher's return to F1 he has accepted blame for almost every incident he was involved where he was actually guilty. Take Silverstone vs Kobayashi for example. He wasn't so in his first career, but now he is. The MSC - Perez incident was not 100% MSC, but more MSC's fault......
No I'm being realistic and pointing flaws in your argument. You're the one being "fighty" whatever that means. Here's another time Schumacher admits his mistakes... NOT!
BTW this is how I think drivers should handle these things. Make a funny sarcastic remark. Even confronting another driver during the race right after he crashes into you is better than disrupting their post-race interview. Massa is inexcusable imo.
I remember how some reacted when Hamilton made that Ali G joke. So much hypocrisy. So much bias here...
