Is this something we could control? Forget it's a STR vs RBR, have you never ever seen another driver letting other by easily because he saw no point in fighting with him at that stage? What do you suppose should be done about that?
This thread is laughable for that very reason, it's completely a product of bias, any other similar situation involving different teams wouldn't be looked at twice, the fact we are discussing this more than a week after the fact is telling me that Austin couldn't come soon enough.
The same thing he would have done if the car behind would have been Alonso's (or any other not RB title contender). This time is didn't make any difference but in the future could be a big problem if STR comes with a faster car. Imagine Brazil 2007 with a STR in the place of the Toyota (but fast enough to hold the RB for a lap) and Vettel as Hamilton...
