We don't agree
If you can logically convince me I am wrong, as I can see my point and yours, I will gladly, and humbly concede.

Sigh............. When you're in front you're not running another driver off the circuit I'm afraid. You're entitled to place your car anywhere you like within the boundaries you are given. Vettel was in the pit lane, Hamilton wasn't.

At the point when Vettel moved to the right he didn't leave Hamilton anywhere to go which is why they ended up touching.
Why exactly are you defending the only driver in history (recent history at least) to not give another adequate room whilst driving side by side down the pit lane.

You can't put your front wheel inside the rear wheel of a car in front into a corner and make contact, or go off-track to achieve the same effect. The whole 'chop' thing amuses me where Hamilton is concerned though.
However, you can't overtake cars that are ahead in the pit lane regardless and go out of bounds to do it though, and I'm afraid Vettel was more than half a car length anyway. The position had gone.At the point when Vettel moved to the right he didn't leave Hamilton anywhere to go which is why they ended up touching.
He certainly had somewhere to go. Hamilton slows down and moves in behind. Easy. They ended up like that because Hamilton wanted to try and get alongside and overtake Vettel via the pitbox area when there was no room to do so and he had no position. That was Hamilton's decision to do that.
This has been repeated so many times it isn't funny.Why exactly are you defending the only driver in history (recent history at least) to not give another adequate room whilst driving side by side down the pit lane.
Every other incident prior to this has been where drivers have ended coming out together to the point where they have simply had no choice but to drive side-by-side - because there are no rules on this side-by-side thing in the pitlane. That was not the case here. We had one driver behind simply wanting to force the issue when he was in no position to do so.
23) PIT LANE
23.1 a) For the avoidance of doubt and for description purposes, the pit lane shall be divided into two lanes. The lane closest to the pit wall is designated the "fast lane", and the lane closest to the garages is designated the "inner lane".
