Hey, I agree he should have gotten a penalty too. Its pretty cut n dry. But Im sure glad he didnt.
Hes not the only one who has gotten away with something this year. Get over it.
You are correct, but IIRC everyone talked about the Vettel/Webber feud for what seemed like a month.

I think they did see it.
I rewatched the pass yesterday multiple times. I didn't see anything warranting a yellow in that section of the track. Of course, I didn't have all of the camera angles. Maybe the yellow was a mistake, but even if it was then how would Alonso have known? I did see a blue flag, so maybe the car slowed to allow Alonso to pass. Anyway it is over and apparently no one else is talking about it so it is a non-issue.
One thing came out of this. Like DLP rainbows, I now see the blue flags everytime where I guess I just never paid attention to them in the past.
