Well what was so dangerous about it to receive what I believe is the harshest penalty other than a black flag? Be realistic it was nothing, you know it's true. It was a low speed accident, where was the danger? Especially in the context of the "everyday" high speed collisions and damage to cars we frequently see in F1 that either go unpunished or to a lesser degree than finger boy was in this incident. Just in the last race at Silverstone, Kvyat (the Torpedo) was only given a drive through penalty for a very high speed collision. And he did not have to go through the post race review, apology and future conditions set that finger boy did. Can you understand my thinking here, yes or no?
Perhaps the stewards should be sacked. But the danger I can see is they couldn't just let it go, or the whole sport would just go to **** if suddenly these 20 ego filled boys started to think they could collide on purpose and get away with it, that would be dangerous.
Stop downplaying it. Vettel had to appear in person, accept full responsibility and apologise (for a deliberate collision). He had conditions placed against him and was clearly told if he did it again the hammer would be coming down (for a deliberate collision).
