vettel is a very fast driver but an average racer. the only time he doesnt make mistakes is when out front by himself. all his career he has made mistakes when in the pack, although it is getting worse with age. in terms of points, ferrari would probably have done better with kimi and leclerc this s...

could he have done a little bit more to stay left. Yes possibly, but he is trying to stay ahead which any racing driver would.
did it deserve a penalty. No
Would hamilton have done the same. Yes

If he had made contact with hamilton or forced him into the wall it would have been a penalty.

On average it isn't though. For every 1999 you get multiple seasons where team orders allow the lead driver to wrap up the title sooner/easier, such as 2001, 2002 and 2018.
