The new rule with the black n white flag is the way to go i believe! Giving a penalty to a driver straightaway is not nice if it's not something extreme at least!
I would consider pushing someone off the track in a braking zone they enter at 300+km/h rather extreme that can go very, very wrong.
Just like Vettel in Canada...it was a mistake and of course Vettel would defend his position just like he did!
It's still breaking the rules, and breaking it with intent like you describe should be penalized.
And again i am a Hamilton fan but these kind of penalties that take away someone's win are just too harsh!
1. What does it matter here who you are a fan of? Does your opinion become less valued because you are a Perez fan?
2. The only harsh thing is the inconsistency in which the rules are enforced. And somehow suggesting the rules don't count for the leader of the race makes no sense.
Anyway, i have to admit that Leclerc winning in Monza, smashing Vettel inside Ferrari's home, was what i was hoping for!!
What has that got to do with this?
What i mean by saying "i am a Hamilton fan" is that i am trying to be as objective as i can! Don't know where you got the impression that as a Hamilton fan my opinion is more valued...
Rules apply to everyone of course but it's different losing a win (and maybe a championship at the end) to losing a 15th place and it's difficult to stay consistent since every single accident has its own parameters!
Did Hamilton lose anything by being squeezed from Leclerc?? No...why should Leclerc get a penalty that at the end of the day will lose him a historic win? It took the Ferrari F1 community months to get over Vettel's Canada penalty
Had they touched of course he would have got a penalty there...look at Vettel and Stroll...different penalties because one touched another car and the other didn't, yet the end result was the same! Except for that the experience of the driver involved in the accident is a parameter and i think that's why Vettel got the harsher penalty! You don't expect a 4-time WDC do something silly like this!
And if you know what humor is, then maybe you can understand what my last quote had to do with this...
