Not sure it was maturity, just blind luck and an element of skill he crept out of the gravel. Maturity doesn't give you greater car control or more traction in a load of gravel.

Christian Horner, Red Bull team principal
“For Sebastian, unfortunately everything that could happen today did happen. He got pushed on to the grass on the first lap and then when he was coming back through the field was racing with Jenson. I think Jenson took him by surprise with how early he braked for the bus-stop and trying to avoid him Sebastian got into a bit of a moment and collected Jenson. He was then unlucky with Liuzzi, so not a great weekend for Sebastian.”


It's a joke?

phil1993 wrote:1. I've seen a few comments deriding Kubica for pushing Vettel onto the grass on Lap 2, but when you look at it you can see Kubica lost control, regained control and rejoined he track and when he realised where Vettel was, he gave him room. Fair play there.

2. With the Barrichello-Alonso incident, I think they got it right with not giving anything. Rubens was the one who made the error and he paid for it. Alonso was extremely fortunate to be able to continue. Had Rubens hit him just on a different lap like that, I think a penalty would have been a good thing, but everyone went off and Rubens was the one who happened to encounter another car. Very lucky no-one was injured either.


1. Yeah, Kubica played fair and wise which paid him well. Wish Webber had at least a bit of his wisdom, though.
2. Why should the driver (Barrichello) be penalized for unintended crash (even if it would happen on the other lap)?

Apparently on Lap 2, the reason Kubica went off is that Hamilton did the same ahead and Kubica looked to gain an advantage

Look at Vettel's front wing moving as he approaches Button :zz:



+ they released pics of the Korean pit buildings, but you can't help but feel what they didn't show is more important than what they did...

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw Hamilton just graze the barrier after the off was "You lucky lucky boy"

And Vettel, what a silly goat :lol:

the flex wing may have helped cause the incident.

shouldn't both sides of the wing flex the sameway ... Right side going down and left side going up isn't generally how it'd be , right ? ... I saw it like that . maybe I need to check it again .

In this video you can see Hamilton running wide at Eau Rouge (cuts the inside) and Kubica tries to gain an advantage, only to run wide himself

Kubica slides at Eau Rouge and Vettel tries to passes him

interesting video showing that Massa placed his car in incorrect position on the start of the Spa race. Got away with it, lucky boy
