yes Vettel was giving a penalty for that, but the circumstances were quite different. Vettel left the track and was slow. This was a first corner incident with both cars on normal speed, etc etc.roon wrote: ↑Tue Sep 03, 2019 4:16 pmWhat is the sporting reg here? Car alongside, squeezed partly off track toward barrier. This is part of the reasoning behind why Seb was given a 5 s penalty in Canada. Car alongside, squeezed partly off-track toward barrier.
I don't mean to comment on stewards here. They wont always be consistent. But for the discussion & arguments: Kimi did squeeze a car alongside toward the barrier a la Seb-Hamilton.
At a certain point the squeezed driver sometimes cannot get out--can't go left or right for collision, can't go forward or back for collision (tires interference), and the onus is upon the squeezing driver to provide space to avoid collisions. For their own benefit as well as their opponent's.
racing incident. Verstappen went for a wide gap a bit late and Raikkonen was naive to think that with a full grid he could take the apex from the outside starting position (nobody else did).
