    brilliant from Verstappen but under investigation. nothing wrong with it for me but wouldn't be surprised to see him get shafted

    Brilliant race. Loved that

    I do expect max will get a 5sec pen though , he forced the other car off the road.

    Should never be a penalty it was racing
  5. I worry that will be the case as well. It's that fine line between close racing and being fair. Max did force Leclerc off the track, but as part of a wheel to wheel battle, surely they have to let it go,but this is the Ferrari International Assistance making the decision.

    Max turned in very late too. Similar to rosberg on Lewis that time.

    If they give a penalty for that then we may aswell just give up racing.

    Well, they have to abide by the rules.

    By all means change the rules, but you can't do that right now

    He is in front and has the inside line.

    Damon says he was, but I'm not convinced. He was behind on that line just before the corner.

    Still, you can't force another car off the track, can you?

    I'm 70/30, I don't mind either way though

    If that’s a penalty then it’s s travesty.

    I won’t waste my time and money on watching in future.

    I hope they don't change the result, F1 has become far to predictable and sterile in the last few years.

    I agree. It was racing and when racing you get incidents. If that is a penalty they might as well just do time trials instead of a race

    Brundle’s face there when the Ferrari boss tried to say the only overtakes that should be allowed are ones done by DRS said it all for me.

    Waiting for the Dutch fans to leave so when they give Max a penalty there isn’t a riot.
  16. In fairness to the Ferrari boss, he did say that racing like that should be allowed, just that it currently isn't and that while the rules are the way they are, it should receive a penalty. I don't agree with him, but it's a fair enough position.

    Exactly what I'm thinking too.

    Hopefully they are having a good chat about what the rules really mean. For all I think its probably a penalty, I don't think I want it to be that way.
  18. If it means Simon Lazenby doesn't wear that lederhosen ever again, I'm fully in favour of a 5 second penalty.

    Deserves a penalty for me ! The lap before proves why it does, in the overtake move he ran him off the road to prevent being able to get the same run down to turn 4 n battle for the lead ! Hard racing would have been banging wheels with both cars still on the track

    Slightly in front but that doesn’t give him the right to force the other car off the road though does it ?

    Le clerc turned in early, verstappen had him already...he had to concede, didn’t and got pushed off...sulky little french bollocks, hope Max windmills him for good measure
