With hindsight, I think the best what Vettel could do was to let the car spun and by that he take out hamilton as well. Ferrari would win via Leclerc, everybody would happy and there would not be such an argument.
) Fans of both teams would be happy, it would racing incident. Maybe thats better ending for certain fans of certain non-italian team.
One thing is rule as it is written and the other is racing as some older fans know it. With this kind policing, it is racing for puppies. Really, F1 has been getting softer and weaker over the past 10-12 years. Also this F1technical is continuously transforming into fans wars. Certain threads are not readable anymore.
"It is racing for puppies."
No, it's racing according to simple rules that apply to everyone, if you go off track after messing up you need to rejoin the track in a safe or safe enough manner. it's racing that awards skills not sliding across the corner (so common now, Perez did that too) All the lines/options/it wasn't a proper overtake Hamilton discussion would be relevant for regular overtake/defense not for this one.
"I think the best what Vettel could do was to let the car spun and by that he take out hamilton as well."
- or not go off and lose the lead
- or come back without getting a penalty with his poor driving and try to keep the lead.
- re overtake
Claiming that Vettel had not options (somewhere above) is absurd unless someone else was driving the car. He knew exactly what he was doing, not slowing down and steering right as if no one else was behind him to stay in front.
Like many people here I thought about Ricciardo-Monaco:
- I thought that it was borderline, just about penalty worthy, he clearly steered to block, "he left more space" argument is not relevant (not enough in Monaco) and somehow relevant because it was less blatant and gave stewards excuse to ignore it
. Something Vettel could have done albeit risking an overtake, speed being important variable.
- you knew at the time he wouldn't get anything
