Canadian GP Postscript - Vettel's controversial penalty
  by Brian Carroccio
This is normally the spot for my postscript from the previous IndyCar race. And I’ll have a Texas postscript/IndyCar midyear report sometime later this week, as I’ll be out of town the next couple of days. However, in the meantime, there was some news from the world of Formula One. And I’m going to assume I can forego the cursory background explanation regarding yesterday’s Canadian Grand Prix, in which a very controversial five-second time penalty issued to Sebastian Vettel promoted Lewis Hamilton to the top step of the podium.

Bias F1 Stewards gift Hamilton a win in Canada
  Hand bullshit 5-sec. penalty to Vettel
Lewis Hamilton wanted a fair fight with Sebastian Vettel, and he had it.  However, the Stewards wanted Hamilton to win so they handed Vettel a 5-second penalty for what most would view as a racing incident. Vettel went off into the grass on one corner and slithered back onto the track, the car's tires dirty and Vettel going along for the ride. Hamilton had to touch the brakes to avoid a collision and they carried on their battle no worse for wear.
