So in the future, any car that juts into an area of grass, has to let everyone else go by? I donít think so.
There is no advantage for an F1 car to drive on the grass.
Hamilton couldnít out qualify him, couldnít pass him early, or even with Vettel exiting on the grass.

The Stewards judgment was (and is) inconsistent.

If they felt (which was a split decision) that there was an advantage, they should have ordered Vettel to let Hamilton pass and allow a competition.

Handing Hamilton the victory was rediculous
Please refer to the Verstappen - Raikkonen incident at Suzuka last year.

I suggest you watch every camera angle possible. You can see VET open the steering wheel once the car was back on the track. Notice that I say back on the track and not back in control. VET actually turns the car in the grass...look at the path left by the wheels. This is an open-shut unsafe return situation...which is one of the first things taught when you go to racing school.
