Obviously, my argument is very biased, but I have my reasons, and you have yours for defending him. What you described in your first point is probably true, but did he really think he could steer out of the way? It was his mistake, and any professional driver should always check the lights when coming out of the pits.
On your second point, Kimi did pat Lewis on the back, but that was only the first of the actions, next Kimi pointed at Hamilton, and Lewis kind of flapped Kimi away as if he didn't want to talk about it, which I understand fully. There's no arguing that it was his fault though, and I'd like to see what matters are taken with this issue.
1st= Robert Kubica!!! First win for the Pole, very well done indeed!!! Now one more driver is needed to win to make the list of different race inners 100, could it be Heidfeld?
2nd= Nick Heidfeld!!!
3rd= David Coulthard!!! Great result for the Brit, and deserving of his result, I'm extremely pleased for him.
