Footage of the Fuji GP penalty incidents

What do you think?
During Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix, championship contenders Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa both received drive-through penalties, and Toro Rosso's Sebastien Bourdais had 25 seconds added to his final race time.

1, At the start it was a plain and simple out brake yourself maneuver. Lewis didn't hit anyone and only flat spotted his tyres and put himself slightly down the order.
Racing incident-No penalty

2, Massa out braked himself on the second incident, as a consequence he was passed, fair and square and simply nailed Hamilton in desperation. Hamilton then had to wait for the whole pack to overtake him, stuffing his race.
Vindictive- 25 second penalty-This is for hitting Hamilton.
NOTE: At Spa Hamilton could have done the same thing, but he left room for Kimi, let him pass and then overtook him again without a collision, although Kimi did hit Hamilton from behind. If Lewis got 25 second penalty at Spa then Massa should have gotten a 50 second penalty for this one at Japan.

3, Massa was passed on the inside and he shut the door on Bourdais. The problem was Massa had already let him in!
Racing incident- No penalty
