Just saw the Grosjean Russell incident and I think that it is all on Grosjean this one, he had more than enough room to avoid the crash.

Both drivers are on the limit of traction, to avoid collision one has to turn more and one has to turn less, witch is esier done in this situation?
Picture of the situation one frame before contact.
Worst image to judge the situation. I\m not saying it was easy, you need talent for that, but it all happened earlier, no intent/skills from Russell to take the corner wheel to wheel, meaning correction, something Grosjean did and he was quick enough/early enough through the corner to do it. If he hadn't gone as wide as possible they would have collided earlier.
Why bother when you can slide across and count on taking out the other driver (MV's (TM)). Then cry when it doesn't work out. Even with the monumental driver bias calling for a penalty is silly, ten examples in this very race.
Speaking of monumental - Brundle calling Sainz's line vs Hulkenberg - "normal" racing line. Judging from the cars in front he was the only driver taking "normal" line. Clarification: I'm claiming it was all Sainz's fault, don't care
enough to think about it but that was not - "he took a normal line and that's all folks".
