Justin Lieber had the racing line. Artificial Intelligence did not and instead of following the curve, he almost went straight. The penalty is justified. Justin Lieber slowing is not of a matter since Artificial Intelligence was still behind him.J.A.W. wrote:I 'd reckon AI could feel justifiably pissed-off about any penalty for that..
His telemetry shows his approach speed was consistent with previous laps,
& it was JL who'd slowed up, due to his tyres going off.. & so, effectively baulking AI.
Not so different to what happened with JL slowing mid-corner in front of Miller at Silverstone last year,
- but in that instance it was Crutchlow who was collected.. & JL got off, scot-free.
IMO, JL has to accept responsibility for his part in such 'incidents'..
What you can get out of it perhaps is that the Michelin tyre can create dangerous situations where tyres can go off dramatically. Still, Artificial's responsibility as he was the one making a move.
