In case you have not been counting....the FIA considered the Monza incident of re-entering the track in an unsafe manner a "dangerous incident".

Additionally, the total sum of VET's altercations have placed him in peril of receiving a one-race this the professional results of a four-time WDC? Results don't lie....VET is off the rails and on thin ice with the FIA....

From the ESPN article:
"As he rolled back onto the track, he caught the passing Racing Point car of Lance Stroll. Stroll was sent into a spin, while Vettel suffered front wing damage which forced him to pit immediately. He would visit the pit-lane again shortly afterwards to suffer a stop-go penalty, where he had to sit stationary in the box for 10 seconds and then leave immediately. The only penalty more severe is a black flag, which denotes an instant disqualification.

In their report, the stewards said it deemed it a "dangerous incident". On top of his in-race penalty, Vettel was awarded three points on his superlicence, meaning he now has accumulated nine over a rolling 12-month period.

A driver is automatically banned for one race if they accumulate 12 points in that time span. None of Vettel's existing points expire until the U.S. Grand Prix in November, meaning the German driver will be on thin ice in the races before then."
Are you now going to say that STR could see GAS coming at him and forced him off the track completely,your hilarity knows no bounds.
*Another point that has not been mentioned is the gap between the eyeline and the protruding edge of the safety helmet further reduces the already small angle of visibility,though VET's helmet appeared to move left as if to watch who was coming I believe he could not actually see anyone until it was too late giving viewers a false impression that he could see what was coming.
