This squeezing nonesense has been going on since Schuey introduced the chop. The FIA copped out with the one-move-allowed rule (IMHO) which was always gonna come a cropper when the driver who gets leaned on - in this case, Max - has nowhere to go.
Kimi still had ‘some’ room to his left, but it’s not really the point: when it happens in the blink of an eye there’s no time to do anything about it
By the FIA’s rules it was a racing incident, but by any other measure of common sense it was a fuck up waiting to happen.
Vettel’s cost himself the championship by making a squeeze instead of cautiously getting through turn 1 unscathed and dealing with what comes next.
I wonder, though, how much he worried that Lewis and Max would be unstoppable in the wet conditions
