this was NOT the smart racer move, and will cost him big as the championship goes on. The smarter move would have been to give way a bit and still bring home some points.
If MAL had stayed on the runoff then maybe HAM would have gotten a penalty, but fact he basically drove into hamilton, it doesn't matter that hamilton forced him off track, he did NOT have to rejoin in that manner. I don't even see how he managed to do that, seems like he would have had to TRY to hit him it was so avoidable.
