That rocking doesn't tell us much since it happens anytime when you brake and when you let the brakes go you will still have momentum. He panic braked then immediately went for it.
Vettel jump started and should have drive through penalty, period. It was a disgrace for FIA.
I would argue that an F1 car doesn't rock that hard just from breaking without stopping at such low speeds but the onboard shows that he did indeed come to a full stop, there's 5 frames of him being stationary, it even appears as if the tyres move backwards relative to the camera ... i'd say that if your tyres rotate backwards that you've lost all your momentum, no?
He did not have an advantage from his early start but he also did not have a disadvantage either as he did not lose any more positions.
There's 11 frames from 'green' to him moving again, check the post i linked below, that's roughly what the others needed.
I agree with the latter part of the quote though.

That's a roundabout way of saying that Bottas had a great start
. I bet Hamilton and Leclerc didn't have one for fear of being "close to jumping it".
Yes, the start was 'great' (and perfectly legal) and gave Bottas the race win - everyone else however had a 'normal' start, Bottas benefitted from Vettel's early start and there's no way in hell he reacted to the lights turning off... you can have a look at this post if you want, then you'll know what i mean:
