Were it a racing incident, SHOULD Seb have been punished?
Hamilton pushed Seb ALL the way, could NOT pass him on track
Were the stewards right to apply a 5 second penalty?  
Rules R rules, racing is racing

No brainer. MV had a 5 sec penalty for the same thing last year with KR.

The rules clearly state that if you leave the track you cannot impede another car on rejoining the circuit.

If LH had not taken evasive action today SV could have been looking at 2 race ban for causing a major accident. 

No drama, just fair and reasonable application of the rules. Intent has NOTHING to do with the facts.

The red car did leave the track - the red car did impede on rejoining. Crystal clear

Does it really matter about the rule being abused or not. The REAL outcome of this stupidity is a great race totally ruined.....   I have been an F1 fan for as long as it has been on TV and becoming more and more frustrated by these rules to the point I CANCELLED my Foxtel sport pay to view tv straight after this debacle. I do not need the frustration at 72 yrs of age !!!!!!!!

Hear what your saying mate .....  If this little episode of favoritism, to the point of ruining a great race does not spell the death nell of F1 than I do not know what will.  They have shot both barrels into both feet this time

I miss the times during Senna etc when they go at it and not penalized for simple things like this. 

They favor Merc too much and not ashamed in showing it to the world !

**** F1 !!

For those of you who think this was the right decision by the stewards, go back and re-watch my favorite - Massa vs. Kubica at Fuji in 2007. In the downpour. They each broke several rules, but NOBODY protested or complained. Nobody remembers who won that race, but everybody remembers that short duel. It didn't even matter that Massa won it. It is now a classic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRpQ-w6d6xU

If anybody thinks that the rule book is the same now as in 2007 or earlier, you are sadly mistaken. 

If LH had not breaked (very heavily) there would have have been an accident. Ergo, SV kept his place by leaving the track and impeding - I will say again - intent has nothing to do with it!!

On many occasions, we see drivers unintentionally lock up and miss a chicane or ut a corner and have to give up a place or suffer a penalty.

This was the same. SV left the track and could only maintain his position by impeding. 

If Ferrari, were not so incompetent, they would have recognised this as an unfair advantage (no matter how unintentional), asked SV to let LH past, then SV would surely have had the pace to catch and pass LH for the win outright. 

Just another combination of a SV mistake compounded by poor Ferarri management. Seems to be the story of the season.

Am I right in thinking that Kimi is still the last Ferarri champion and the last Ferrari race winner?
