From this: Just look at his wheel, he is pointing it out to Vettel's direction. EVERY motosport fan (and not only drivers and simdrivers) knows that steering while braking increases the chances to lock the tires, which is what he did and the "excuse" he took for ramming Vettel. Also, if you look the video, you will notice that he was slowing down, but a moment before the crash he regained a bit of speed, compared to Ricciardo and Vettel in front of him, like if he pushed a bit on the accelerator. For FutureF1, I might agree with you if the first ram was the only one. But after that error, instead of being cautious, he pushed to the limit causing the second and final one. This is a repeated distance error and I can't think that an experienced driver, which had to pass an exam to get the "superlicence" to drive in F1 can't understand which is the moment to risk and which the one to assure get the car to the finish line. Oh right, I'm sorry, he passed it, so you might be right. One less opponent and he still finished the race.
