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.”

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)?
