As I said, everyone changes position more than once at the start, its the nature of the start. Punishing everyone would have no effect on final race results, so it's not implemented for the rush to the first corner, is how I see it. Regardless, you can just as easily say Hamilton was defending against Button when he swerved inches in front of him, as opposed to "he was reacting to Vettel's defensive moves". You could say that about every car at the start. Is racer x (lol) defending or making offensive moves or avoiding collision? Moot point either way, in the lead up to the first corner.
For the start debate:
You must have in mind that Hamilton in the start is making 4 moves as you say trying to overtake.I dont remember a rule saying that u cant make no more than one move when attempting overtaking.Also i cant recall the start being excluded from the direction change rule.Same goes for everyone on the grid.Some of them defend and some of them attack at every start.The rule must apply to anyone in breach of that.
Nice job countering his very poor arguments ^.^
