100% Grosjean at fault - he should get a multiple race ban for that.

What like one race for each driver he took off?

Although he has lived his entire life in Switzerland, he does race under the French flag, and quite frankly has just confirmed the worlds prejudice as to the quality (or lack) of French drivers

Paula has just pointed out that Prost was French, so I have to admit there is the odd exception to the rule.....

He had that other French thing going though: being an insufferable arsehole...

Grosjean should thank his lucky stars that fuck up didn't end up killing Alonso. I can't imagine what possessed him to just dive into Hamilton's car like that. A real testament to the safety of these cars now. Knocked two WC's and title contenders out of the points for this race, changed the championship up a bit. Spa is always an exciting time for better or worse.

Just glad everyone got away breathing and upright.
