Should have gone to specsavers…

Im left wondering today if Alonso is actually capable of  holding his hands up and saying “my fault”.
He and Lewis are both aggressive, no nonsense racers, but when Lewis gets it wrong, on several occasions he has shown the ability to admit his error.
I remember after the pitlane crash into Kimi at Canada 2008, he came out and said ‘I got it wrong’.

In the post race interviews, Alonso was virging on the obtuse, and could only come up with “the crash cost me a podium”. That’ll be your fault then Fernando!

I think Alonso’s penalty is fair enough, though it cost him nothing in points or places, and the penalty for Lewis I can also accept, but only if the same rule is enforced fairly and evenly for the rest of the season.
One occasion of someone not being penalised for moving more than once to defend will make a mockery of the decision this weekend and the role the stewards perform. It will be a hard act to keep up.

Lewis did well to bite his tongue post race, he was clearly bubbling with rage.
Onto China and fingers crossed for some rain to shake up the Bulls at the front!

    I think it was very harsh to penalise Lewis for this. It’s not like he veered wildly across the track in front of Alonso. His car follows a good line coming out of the corner.

    As you say, it will be interesting if they enforce this rule consistently throughout the season. It will be a tough one to manage given the high volume of overtaking moves we are expecting to see.
