No further action over start-line crash involving Verstappen, Raikkonen and Vettel

Anyone that expected something other than a racing incident were foolish. It was obvious from the replays they showed that no one was to be blamed.

What a fucking disaster for Ferrari. Seb can say goodbye to the world title unless Lewis suffers from a DNF.

At least Palmer got his first serious points. XD

VETTEL held his line. Verstappen had enough space and didn't need to turn left into Kimi, who was just trying to pass

As it should be. I get people can be caught up in the moment, but if you seriously expected anything else after that replay, then more fool you are.

EDIT: God that follow up tweet from Ferrari is stupid. Just take the L on this one.

No punishment from the stewards is absolutely the correct decision. If I were in charge at Ferrari I would probably want Vettel to apologise to Kimi and I think Max is right to be aggrieved, but it happens way too quickly for a "causing a collision" penalty.

You could add 2010(2011?) to that list too. Alonso has a prime chance of winning the Championship at Abu Dhabi, gets held up behind Petrov in the Lotus for most of the race, wrecking his strategy and giving Vettel the Championship win as a result.

Racing incident makes sense to me. Vettel may have triggered the crash, but he didn't pressure anyone into a spot where there wasn't room. Kimi could have dodged further out, but didn't. And Max got caught in a Ferrari sandwich. Everyone just drove more or less straight, but their lines crossed. And only one car can be in the same spot at a time.

Besides, everyone involved crashed out. Exactly what punishment would they give? Even if someone was to blame it wouldn't be more than a 5-10 second penalty, so why bother blaming anyone?

I certainly hope Aston Martin's foray into F1 will be substantially better than their last attempt at prototype racing.

I'd sure like a British Racing Green F1 car back on the grid. Then'd we'd go full circle and a return to Jaguar Racing ;)

Just watched the race after coming back from the BTCC at Silverstone. Holy shit what a mad start. I'm glad for Lewis to extend his lead significantly but disappointed to lose Seb and Max so early, could've really spiced up the tyre switchover phase.

You simply don't trust Ferrari to do the right thing and never forget that they'll always somehow fuck it up.

Ah well. I missed the start, but saw the highlights, thanks to Sunhi! Didn't bother with the rest of the race and went back to playing The Witcher 3. It's not like I didn't think the season was already over for them (obviously), but at least it's settled now, rather than during the last couple of races. I don't really blame Vettel in particular for the start, as it was definitely a racing incident. But he simply couldn't afford this shit, after fucking up Baku so badly, so this is probably his Suzuka 2012. Fuck his stupid immature ass. I can't wait until he and Kimi leave the team. And no, I'm not going all Wax on those two, I just don't like them and I like them (behind the wheel) even less, when they can't get the job done.

Holy hell. Only now caught up with the starting crash. If I didn't knew any better you'd say that was a kamimaze attack from the Ferrari team on Verstappen.

Could've been an amazing race if that didn't happen. VER was on fire in the practise and Q rounds. Combine that with the rain and it would've surely been super entertaining. Too bad.

The season is still young, and anything can still happen.

Of course what I hope happens seems to be the most likely, long may the Ferraris continue to take each other out at the first corner.
