Ham passed two other cars in that same corner later in the race including a pass for 1st place.  VER pushed HAM towards the wall approaching that turn.  From where he was he could not get out on the racing line to get the angle for the apex of the turn.  Both were racing hard and neither one was going to back off because they expected the other one to blink.  Neither blinked. 

It has happened before and will happen again.  If you start handing out penalties for racing you might as well present the trophies at qualifying, because that is the only racing you will see.

Definitely agree Critterman, they are both heavy competitors and were not going to give. I think it was a racing incident, but sorry to see Max get hurt.
But glad it wasn't too bad, hurt wise. I thought that Max squeezed Ham a bit, but Ham also drifted slightly left. But at those speeds it was hard not too.
Overall a good race, I liked the setup format. Less boring and waiting for some action. Seemed to keep the teams on their toes for the race.

He deserved the penalty. He was not ahead and should have stayed to his right instead of coming into Vers racing place.

That was a weird weekend.
I enjoyed the sprint, but kind of felt like it didn't matter and they should just do qualifying and a race. 

I agree with LV, it was close to being just a racing incident, and it's gonna happen again with these 2, but according to the rules, Hamilton was at fault. 

That sure makes the driver race a lot closer.

Looks like Red Bull wants more.
They launched a challenge against the Ham's penalty.

They want him suspended for a race.  They meet on Thursday with 'new' information.  If they get their way it will be the end of racing in F1.

How many times has Max taken his own teammate out of a race by being "competitive?"  RB needs to get over it and move on.
