That incident was 100% Hamilton's fault. He went COMPLETELY off line then hit the brakes. Thus he was way farther behind the safety car than the rules allow, which at the time was 5 car lengths. Coulthard and Vettel were following on the racing line, Coulthard noticed that he was about to overtake Hamilton, and braked accordingly. Vettel was caught out by severe braking where there shouldn't have been, and in a heavy rain no less. His collision with Coulthard was caused by a bad move on Hamiton's part.

I know I am most likely in the minority with my opinion. But that's what makes this debating all so much fun
