I personally think there are a few others on the grid that warrant more scrutiny than Kimi. Grosjean comes to mind
but I'm sure we could come up with a few others if we tried really hard.
And having seen the Grosjean vs. Whiney Webber, I don't see how Webber is placing (other then Grosjean being an easy target) all the blame on another driver.
Webber was going into the corner hot (duh) and someone else was on the outside edge of the corner. Webber checked up (duh again, he had to) moving down towards the inside of the corner. Grosjean was charging into the corner (cue the duh yet again as it is a race, even in the first lap) and when Webber came down he left Grosjean very little to do. Could Grosjean have slammed on the brakes? Yeah, and that would have done what to everyone behind? Was Webber ahead of Grosjean at the time of the incident? Yeah. But guess what, Webber has mirrors and KNOWS what Webber is about to do. Grosjean didn't know what Webber was going to do.
It was a RACING incident. Webber needs to pull up the big boy underwear and march on.
BUT GROSJEAN COULD HAVE KILLED SOMEONE!!! IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MURDER!!!!!!!!!
Racing, Incident. 10 second stop and go reflected that.
