Actually if you look at the last three frames of the incident below, it does seem quite clear that Kobayashi moved away from the line a bit before the contact - a tire's width or so? Also, it appears to me that in the second to the last frame Hamilton has already begun his turn into the corner, if only slightly. Looking at this, I wouldn't dismiss the idea that Kobayashi was to blame.
Pieced together by someone on Atlas - great work...
Great find but iif you zoom in on the the second to last frame (very easy to do on my iPad) you can clearly see that Lewis Almost has his rear wheel in between kamuis wheels so the last frame only shows that contact has been made and Lewis is merely trying to extract himself from and accident that is already in progress (tire smoke is clearly visible proving contact is well and truly in progress).
It's also pretty obvious that Lewis progressively drove into Kamui whose line never deviated until the collision actually took place!
Does not compute.
You are making things up.
Following driver can see more, he is responsible and has more options.
There was no wall stopping Kamui from staying out either.
Look on the Button overtakes in this race. See how each driver has mercy on him.
even webber into eau rouge with Alonso. All merciful.
This mercy is not extended when they want to get a few stripes off Hamilton.
Kamui simply couldn't execute the move. He ran out of skills and the car was unstable under braking.
