Are they dropping one to include this or adding to the calendar?
It is in Spain's current slot
What was the latest on the British GP?

Sad day for F1 if we lose this one.
Well done MB, who was right ? At least the best team were winners again.
It was a poor stewards decision today, Vettel was not fully in control of his car when he came back onto the circuit so should not have been penalised.
Apparently the rule book disagrees with you. That is what guides the stewards decisions.
Its happened before, & the stewards decision was the same.
Marginal decision, and I feel for the stewards.
Had they not awarded a penalty, it wouldn't be many races into the future when some driver would use a deliberate similar maneouvre and point to this race as his justification.
Whatever may be said, it was Seb who made the mistake, not Lewis - and again that cost Ferrari the win.
If a driver spins out of control on a bend and renters the race track before gaining control of his car is that also a 5 second penalty. More extreme I know but same principle.
If a drivers leaves the track and re enters causing another driver to take avoiding action or brake, he will be penalised.
It is considered an unsafe re entry and although I feel for Vettel on this occasion, he kept his foot down instead of lifting off and letting Hamilton onto the racing line. If Hamilton hadn't braked there would have been a collision.
I've watched and re-watched the incident and I am of the opinion that Vettel deliberately turned into Hamilton to force him to back out or back off.
I am extremely *issed that everyone is patting Vettel on the back and saying, "there, there Seb, you were robbed", when he was, imho, clearly cheating and trying to force Hamilton off the track.
Basically he got what he deserved, and, his anger is aimed at himself as, he knows what he did was wrong.
He’s a sore loser, End of
I've watched it a few times, Seb had three choices, crash into the barrier, apply brakes and possibly cause an incident, or do what he did and saved the car by joining the track. It should be a racing incident. Cannot see any future drivers hitting the grass at speed to gain track position.
It makes a change to see stewards not automatically ruling in favour of Ferrari....
Just watched it again and Vet had massive oversteer when coming back on to the track, you can't turn into someone when you are steering in the opposite direction (I am not a fan of either driver)
I think Reckless is a fair description, and as for switching the position markers around was just plain childish.
Also storming through the Mercedes garage, showed total disrespect.
Didn't the same happen to Lewis a while back costing him the championship?

VET has always been a petulant child, HAM is way too smug but he is having the rub of the green at the moment
