Max did nothing wrong. At most it was Vettels fault.

Vettel bottled it on his own boys. He's wrecked the race for Kimi, Max and himself...

Hope for a good race from here though anyway :)

Yep...Lewis kept his nose clean and drove according to conditions. Vettel drove into the wall.

Possibly penalty for Seb for causing a collision?

Unlikely as it's first lap though.

To me it looked like Vettel (unnecessarily) put the squeeze on Max, not knowing where Kimi was. Most annoyingly, that took out Fernando as well who had a blistering start.

And then Vettel dropped on his own. Not that I think he'd be able to continue with that radiator damage anyway.

Ricc. Should win this though. Commentator confirming it's Vettel fault for squeezing. Stupid on a wet race. Just get round the first few corners and regroup.

Odds on Hamilton retiring due to one of the most random failures possible? Helmet visor clip failure or something?

Palmer and Kvyat made it round in one piece, it must be safe.

Vettel has finished his own championship. Utterly unnecessary squeeze on Verstappen. Wasn't needed, just stupid mind games. He still seems to have some insecurity in close racing.

And I'm not sure, but after still surviving, did he just spin on his own, like a simple rookie traction error?

Edit: He likely spun on fluids leaking from his own damaged sidepod. Still, it was his own doing.

My humble opinion:

Safe start but vettel squeezed Max too much not knowing that Kimi was on Max's inside.

Vettel to blame if anyone, but entirely a racing incident and Kimi was probably unseen by Vettel.
There is no theory of evolution, just a list of animals that Chuck Norris allows to live.

duuhhh, looked like Verstappen didn't use his left rear view mirror and hooked Kimi - didn't see him I suspect.........

Sad for Kimi as that was terrific launch off the line for him, ruined by the kid.

Has Vettel cost himself the championship?

Verstappen has been cost the win.

It's not the first time Vettel has caused an accident at the start because he hasn't considered the possibility of more than one car on the inside.

So Hamilton already met his target for this weekend - damage limitation, and won't lose points to Vet :)
