I have the feeling that if the Mercedes of Hamilton was replaced by the 2012 Renault of Roman Grosjean, the comments and blame would be pointed in a new direction. May even hear calls for a race or two suspension.
Do you mean the crash in Spa where Gorsjean came fully across the track, locked wheels with Hamilton and then rear ended over Alonso and taking out others too? What relevance does that have here?
It allows people who don't understand nuence to feel like they're making an argument based on facts, when in actuality they're clutching at straws.
The incident is done. Over. Finished. Both drivers share blame, with the stewards judging Lewis "predominantly" but not wholly to blame.
Max should have been smarter and conceded the corner, knowing that at worst he'd finish 2nd, but could likely have regained the lead during pitstops. Or he should have gone wide, claimed Lewis forced him off and then Lewis may have gotten a penalty or been told to hand the place back.
You don't consolidate a WDC lead on a single corner, you can lose it.
