Thanks for the observations Peter. In spite of all the chuntering about the rules by many, including me, there are some interesting battles going on. I just wish the cars weren’t so damn ugly! On the basis of innocent until proven I think it was correct to not to penalise Rosberg, as you say Hamilton should have got his lap in sooner. Interesting point about Vettel and his driving style. I always assume that they can infinitely adjust a car nowadays to give whatever behaviour the driver wants but obviously it is not that simple.
I think it’s quite fashionable to assume that every slight “issue” can these days be solved by adjustments to the car but Casino – and Turn 9/10 at Bahrain – also showed just how differently the drivers perform one from another – even within the same team. It’s very rare, I know, ever to hear an F1 driver say something like “well, today I just didn’t do the job as well as my team-mate. He really had me through Turn X but I’ll be back again next weekend…” but a few reality checks wouldn’t go amiss from time to time.
