  1. For what it's worth John, I'm of the same opinion. Particularly because it was the first lap when these things used to be considered more of a race incident. You saw Max notice Lewis on the inside so straighten the wheel slightly and then turn back in, he just assumed Lewis would back off in my opinion. Fair play for him not doing so, Lewis has been very respectful to Max several times this season already by pulling out of a 50/50 whereas Max just doesn't. On the flip side, Lewis did run slightly wide so when you bear in mind that Lando and Perez got penalised for similar incidents at Austria, I suppose they were being consistent (consistently wrong in my opinion because as you say this is wheel to wheel racing), but why a 10 second penalty and not 5 like the others? Was it because you had Christian 'Dramatically Over the Top' Horner bleating on on the radio (don't get me started on Helmet Marko and his absurd comments). Strange in my opinion. It's also interesting that Leclerc (who was right behind them) and Alonso have both said they felt it was a racing incident too. At the end of the day though, what an amazing come back despite the harsh penalty. Should make the next few races a little more spicy too!

  2. I'm probably biased towards LH, however, I was there Friday and Saturday and it was building all weekend. Going in to Copse, Lewis pulled the same move on Max on Sunday, that Max pulled on him in Sprint Qualifying on Saturday. They didn't crash on Saturday because Lewis gave in. Max didn't give in. 100% racing incident. The penalty was harsh, but not as harsh as the one for Russell on Saturday - absolute joke. The stewards need to understand it's motorsport, not a parade! Just my opinion...
