    Clarification @ 3:48:
    I add that it’s irrelevant if out of control or not. Actually this part is incorrect. Sorry. If out of control all the time whilst squeezing Lewis then no penalty. As you don’t get penalty for making a mistake going off and sliding back onto the track even if you end up hitting someone.
    Crucially, Vettel was definitely totally in control of his car in the latter part of squeezing Lewis where if Lewis would not have backed out there would have been a collision = unsafe rejoining = penalty.

      I agree.
      [Nb. I was not your biggest fan when a driver, Mr. Rosberg, since Lewis was my boy. But I think you're an excellent commentator, and I thoroughly enjoy your insights every weekend. And you look a lot less stressed. Keep up the good work!]

      How about crashing in a wide corner by squeezing each other that you have shown in 2016 races... You shouldn't make such "so called" neutral review videos... At least vettel didn't quit F1. Time to unsubscribe..

      Haha... Don't say about squeezing.... We have seen real squeezing in 2015 and 2016 between Hamilton and his other champion team mate.

    Nico Rosberg, the accidental F1 champion who won the championship because of mechanical failures to Lewis's car. Nico Rosberg is also eternal Vettel hater and is jealous about Vettel for his achievements

    If Lewis ran into the wall, that's Lewis' fault. Simple. Why punish Vettel for Lewis' shortcomings? Your logic here is a fallacy, just like the Stewards'.

  • mtiller2006

    Mr. Rosberg, I apologize in advance. I understand your opinion on the stewards' take, but I respectfully have to disagree with you and them. It did seem that Vettel came back onto the track unsafely, that I cannot deny. But if you put yourself in Vettel's position as we were watching from his car cam, he did NOT have control of his vehicle and I'm positive it was not his fault. You could clearly see he lost it just at that turn, hence why he went across the grass. He fought with his steering wheel through the grass and was still fighting with it as he came back onto the track. No control of his car, grass on his tyres, he was lucky to not have collided with the wall or Hamilton on that one. I'm sorry Nico, but I'm with Vettel on this one. He was robbed.

    Love you. But dont agree at all. He wasnt in control of his car till the moment he managed to look into the mirror and that was right the situation, where he got close to Lewis. He really had no chance to do any different and this is why he got a penalty for going on the green basicly. And I dont think at all, that he is doing mistakes under pressure or because of the pressure. He pretty knows how to deal with it. Even the best ones are doing mistakes, all of them, always. He hit the green. Lewis didnt get the braking point more than ones.

    To those who disagree: Imagine a championship decider at the final race of the year. Vettel makes a mistake exactly as he did in Canada, slides across and hits Lewis. Lewis suffers damage to his car, Vettels car survives and he wins the title. The weaker driver, the driver who made a mistake, would (at the expense of his superior rival) be champion. If you are a Vettel fan, switch the roles in this story with Lewis making the mistake and winning as a result of being the weaker driver. It would be a travesty. Would you want no penalty? Would you call that fair?

    You know what you are talking about, i will give you that. But every driver in the world says Robbed. You are all alone, but the other driverd don't know racing and do not hav experience. Only you!
    Good job. Try it yourself instead of leaving

  • Kamil Trnka

    It is not normally get a penalty for making a mistake. Also pilot on the track must pay attention!!!
    Don't be angry with me Nico, but according to your judgment, if the pilot spins and stops the traffic, he should probably always be disqualified.

  • Evžen Körner
    Evžen Körner 3 months ago

    I think there are two issues many are mixing together. If would Vettel be penalized for gaining advantage I would not say a word... But when he tries to keep control over his car - trying to eliminate bigger damages on his and Lewis' car and get penalized for this, I would be also pissed off...

  • SLAM
    SLAM 3 months ago

    I disagree completely with the decision. The rule is for a driver that has exited (e..g. slid) off the track, is in control, and has at least a second to plan when and how to rejoin the race. Vettel was still racing and while he perhaps had some control, he was racing. He is allowed one move and that was to the right, and that blocked Ham. Too bad - that is racing. Vettel made a mistake and was able to save the car and finish first, so why should he be punished. Why not let them race?
    That is exactly why Formula One was fantastic racing in the past. This is why the ‘new F1’ is so boring and losing fans. I can no longer watch a race without a break since it puts me to sleep.

    It was unfortunate Vettel came off . But as Nico said Hamilton on the back of your gearbox with the pace he carries is pretty pressuring . However I think the stewards got it right . It's obvious by the manouver Vettel pulled that he did actually see Lewis Hamilton in his mirror why else would you shoot across the track like that if it wasn't to cut someone off . He could have rejoined the track on the left side but he cut came a Ross cut right into the racing line knowing that Hamilton was there and he's Nico he could have left more room for Hamilton but he didn't he cut him off blind period that was a dangerous manouver . I'm glad no one was hurt because it could have been worse if it had been someone else other than Hamilton and Nico you have also deliberately done it to Hamilton too 😉

    Vettle overdriving the car because lets face it, the Ferrari is a 2nd rate car compared to the Mercedes , lets see how well Hamilton would do driving the Ferrari, as an example, lewis in the crappy handling McLaren, didn't exactly shine then did he? especially when Button was making him look average..

  • foot in mouth
    foot in mouth 3 months ago

    Vettel should have given the place and taken the fight to Hamilton, simple's, instead of turning into the racing line when he knew Hamilton was there, I don't buy Vettel's reaction at all, he was in control and should have stuck to the left, penalty deserved, although if he had given the place, no penalty required, Vettel's fault.

    If Seb had not been accelerating while in the grass and continued to steer to the racing line to purposely block the racing line in an unsafe re-entry he would have won

  • Shin Dok

    The fans are getting upset @Nico. And why? The decisions are getting in favour of mercedes and Lewis all the time. Take a look at this weekends decision not to punish Lewis for the fp2 incident.
    If you dont punish Lewis, then the vettel in canada situation is similar incident and similar consequence.
    What is todd doing in the mercedes garage?
    Is Mercedes doing something with under bodyworksun-energy recovery? And are they using this for tyre heating during driving?
    I think there are some advantages like the way the car has been build. Ferrari and red bull must concentrate on next year. And unless the FIA are introducing a weight system like DTM, this season is lost.

  • Alan Haywood

    With respect Nico...you were gifted the championship, puncturing Louise's LHR tyre, deliberately, clearly seen on video, running him off the track sending you both off, preventing an overtake by slowing to an almost standstill, forcing him off he track, twice getting off the start line while Louis mysteriously stood still..a bit of pit wall interference? C'mon, real racers dont retire having won the world championship. You can fool yourself all you like but you don't fool us. You didn't win It...Louis lost it.

    What you all should reflect on is the fact that Hamilton could easily have avoided that situation since it must have been very clear to him. But instead Hamilton seeks the incident and right away complains on the radio. What a dickhead!!!

  • FusionMD
    FusionMD 3 months ago

    With all due respect Nico! i cannot agree with you... Lewis put himself in that situation... he could ve go on the outside line to pass he saw vettle out he knows he would rejoin an at the right side... Vettel was just steering the car he did not think where Lewis is cause preserving the car is more important I don't think he could've easily left more room, it is just your opinion.. and I completely understand his attitude towards the end where they robbed him clean of such a sweet victory... I would like to see you in his situation... what would you say when you know you didn't do anything wrong... making mistakes is not illegal and there is no penalty for going off track... and there was no case for unsafe rejoin... Lewis made it look that way! it was just an invented penalty from thin air which only benefited mercs and lewis ... everybody else lost on a spectacle...

  • Chris Wyett

  • MasterSandman

    Great video Nico, completely and utterly agree with you!
    Vettel made the mistake himself (again cracking under pressure) and kept his foot on the gas, which was the main reason he lost control of his car in the first place!
    Yes it sucks the rulebook is way too thick, but the rule is there, so it needs to be upheld!
    If anyone robbed Vettel from his victory, it is Seb himself!

  • Chip Mcdonald
    Chip Mcdonald 3 months ago

    1) Regardless if he was out of control or not, Lewis had to avoid; if he *hadn't* gone off but impeded Lewis *he'd been penalized*.
    2) It was *Vettel's mistake*.
    3) He lucked out under "bringing the sport in ill repute" with the after race antics.

    Vettel could have braked hard or even locked up before going off or even when rejoining the track in order to avoid forcing Hamilton into the wall. That would have possibly allowed Lewis through but then he might have avoided a 5 second penalty as he would have clearly made every effort to rejoin the track safely.Instead he allowed the car to carry on in the direction it was going without making any effort to slow down almost putting Lewis in the wall.

    nico understand you still are a experienced race driver , but if lewis had balls he would have made the pass not win because of a stewards he did same thing to ricciardo in 2016 yet lewis won ricciardo finished second . it not a matter of which driver is wrong its about stewards not making different rules for different drivers . i dont watch f1 now just look at the results and your pod cast . watched every race since 1975 but after last year no longer a fan of fixed championships you should have been a 3 time champ but f1 stewards didn't allow it
