Poll: Who was at fault for the Ricciardo-Stroll crash?

Lance Stroll and Daniel Ricciardo came together during the Chinese Grand Prix, earning the former a 10 second time penalty which he called a "joke", with the latter having to retire from the race.

Daniel Ricciardo did not mince his words when he learned of Lance Stroll's reaction to their incident - and his subsequent 10 second time penalty - after the Aston Martin ran into the back of the RB, saying: "Fuck that guy."

As the pack was readying itself for the first safety car restart, a slowing Fernando Alonso caused a concertina effect at the Turn 14 hairpin. The end result: Ricciardo just avoiding contact with Oscar Piastri in front and getting rear-ended by Stroll from behind, launching his RB into the air momentarily.

After the race, Stroll explained why he thought the penalty was unfair, but insisted he did not think Ricciardo was to blame, either. So it begs the question: who was at fault for the collision?
