I wouldn't be surprised if a F1 at full speed, does indeed produce wake turbulence that a driver following it can feel 2-4 se...

Clearly Vettels fault but I believe the resulting damage changes the stewards decision. So as Vettel lost time because of the broken wing and Gut didn't get any damage that's why they didn't penalise Vet

He had his wheel on the white line in the corner that mattered. Brundle was wrong. And the corner after where he went off he would have lost time by going of rather than gain time so that's why.

No, it wasn't a mistake for Ferrari. But it may have bee for Räikkönen; he knew just how weak Ferrari really are.
