That's been reported as fact, but is completely speculation.

Ow, was he booed for that? I thought he was booed throughout the years for just being Vettel.
Maybe, it's just a thought, but when you look at the replay the lights of the safety car are on before the corner and out after the corner. Seeing that Lewis is the first to spot the lights off and backs off to dictate the pace. An unexpected Vettel didn't see the lights where off and Lewis could dictate the pace and drove in the back of Lewis.
Thus we conclude, race control created a dangerous situation and therefor Charlie Whithing should get a race ban.
Sebastian Vettel clash with Lewis Hamilton to face further FIA probe
but i wonder if this not ban because of baku but build up of problems the fact he has shown no remorse for his actions, almost trying to make them acceptable which they arent whether you a 4x world champion or 2 race rookie . i remember after mexico when he told charlie whiting off. that any more trouble could lead to a tribunal
i would still say to him anything 3pts straight away & post Britain 5pts. as he would have to clean up his act
The moody wee git needs an official slap.
I dont see any evidence to support that.
Nico didnt get black flagged and banned.
Maldonado didnt get black flagged and banned.
Happy to take any supporting evidence to the contrary.
Then again he got no punishment at all in 1994.
Prost did it in 1989 and the guy he drove into got DQ'd
That guy, Senna, did it in 1990 and even admitted it. Got no punishment at all.
F1 is a confusing place.
Monaco grand prix: Schumacher's run ends in farce and fury
Schumacher braked suddenly, Montoya went into the back of him and Juan Pablo said it was his fault! In an environment where everyone hated Schumacher I reckon Montoya would have got away with doing what Seb did.
so there is no precedent then. no indication that another driver would be treated differently?
glad thats clear.
I'm guessing a lot here so bear with me...
I was under the impression that the lights out moment was standardised by practice if not by regulation. I reckoned that that point was at the Sector 2 line, or at least near there.
The lights did seem to go off at the same place on all three restarts.
Can anyone enlighten me to the actual regulatory position?
Just to be clear none of those I listed were either. Especially the Senna one in 1990. He actually told everyone the day before that if they didn't switch the pole slot to the other side of the grid he was going to crash into Prost at the first corner......and he did it.
You make a good point. that could be big difference that under racing red mist is different to calculated move just there about to go racing. but as few have said "put vettel at the back of grid". arent we just ruining our own enjoyment because we want lewis & vettel giving us a great battle on track. lewis possibly driving off into sunset
point on safety car, just it set off alot further back than sector 3 to give the cars more time to get the gap. as this did all start because lewis had to back the pack up more because he was mighty close to Overtaking the safety car
The only point I was making The Artist was the starting procedure shouldn't need to be changed to suit the drivers following Hamilton regardless who was calling for a change. It was up to all the following drivers, including Vettel, to leave enough space between themselves to allow for the fluctuating speed of the lead car and prevent themselves piling into one another.
Kewee....... unless of course the driver leading the restart does this

BBC Sport had article with some previous examples "road rage" in the F1
When drivers attack - a history of road rage in F1
decreasing intrigue in the championship
In Vettel's case, he screwed up and then lost his head. I think he should get a one race ban. If we were talking about someone like Perez on Hamilton it would have happened already.
The other factor that needs to be mentioned in terms of the title race is the psychological effect on Vettel. Hamilton has the morale high ground on this one. Remember how Rosberg lost his edge royally over the incident at Spa a few years ago. I think we could see something similar this time. Vettel has shown a mental weakness that's there to be exploited. Press the right buttons and he's going to pop. That's handy if you are Hamilton and you are under Vettel's rear wing with 10 laps to go.
