Sebastian Vettel moves No 1 board away from Hamilton's car after losing Canadian GP

Sebastian Vettel said he is falling out of love with Formula One after a controversial penalty denied him victory in Canada and promoted Lewis Hamilton to first place. At turn four on lap 48, Vettel went across the grass and almost Hamilton as he returned to the track on the inside and his rival attempted to go around him. The Ferrari driver emerged in front and stewards then gave him a five-second penalty for an unsafe return and forcing another car off the track. Vettel held his lead to the end but was only 1.3 seconds in front of Hamilton who thus took the win for Mercedes - the British star's fifth win from seven rounds. After the race, Vettel theatrically grabbed the big No 1 sign parked in front of Hamilton's car and moved it to where his Ferrari should have been in the empty No 2 slot. Ferrari are appealing the time penalty.

    @taboo7tatoo he did nothing to provoke that rear end kick, for all you know it could have been an oil spill on the track or a dead spot on the Tyre. After that he managed to get control back and to avoid hitting the wall (which what he was gonna do if he just braked because the tyres were wett from the grass). Then he was penalised for that because Ham got near and had to brake. I see this as a racing incident, not an intentional blocking move from Vet.

Lewis will get his 6th title this year.. for the sake of the F1 maybe they can bring nico back to the F1, let him drive the Ferrari or MERC so we can see true wheel to wheel race..

    Hard luck Vettel but ‘thems the rules’. And you know it, you are a professional F1 driver afterall. You did nothing wrong except come off the course by carrying too much speed or some other misjudgement and then re-entered the road in a manner disruptive to a car who hadn’t strayed off the highway - simple as I understand it.... As I see it successful F1 drivers are hard-wired NOT to “give up position” [even when they should - it’s simply not in their DNA] hence they get penalised from time to time and almost invariably blame someone else for their own situation.

    Vettel cracked under pressure as usual and then embarrassed himself. People are seeing this totally the wrong way. Without this rule in place, drivers would take exit routes and cause potentially deadly accidents upon returning on the track. Had Hamilton rightfully tried to go through both drivers would have been in a serious crash, Vettel could have flown off himself. Difficult but appropriate call from the stewards.

    For me Vettel made a mistake again due to Hamilton pushing hard. Vettel rejoined the track and pushed H nearly into the wall subsequently reducing H’s speed, stopping the overtake move that would of happened so he gained an advantage which is clear to see. For me he should of been made to give his place up as he only kept the place due to aggressive driving whist not under full control and with the Ferrari been faster in the straights would of resulted in V gaining the place back, however giving V a five second penalty was a clear offer to Mercedes of the first place !!!! FIA you need changes as you robed Ferrari of a excellent win.

Que pena! Mas teremos todos os apaixonados da F1 sempre uma unica grande certeza: A Ferrari è uma lenda unica e irripetivel, a Mercedes e' so um bim carro, nada a mais.
