No one drove in a dangerous manner, they just managed to trip over one another. Yes it was the end of Senna's race but it could easily have been the end of Vettel's championship, so what's the point of punishing anyone?

I agree that no penalty was warranted, but I thought they'd at least announce "The incident is under review."



You can bet that if the roles were reversed, they would have had a look!

They rarely announce that incidents are under review when it's on the first lap unless there is a seriously bad crash, they have said before now that they know it's a free for all and they are a lot more tolerant because you have 24 cars funneling into some tight corners. Getting them all through is more luck than judgement in a lot of cases it seems to me. Had it have happened on lap 2 or 3 they might have looked at it differently though.
