Right decision by the stewards. Consistent based on current rules, but it should be more than a 5s penalty

Max punished Leclerc for getting a bad start. That should not have resulted in a penalty in my opinion.

He needs to keep the car on track - anyone can "punish" driver on the outside if they don't stop in time for the corner.

It should be either be giving the place back, a drive through penalty or 10 second stop/go penalty for an overtake
like that depending if it causes the other driver to crash or pick up damage. I guess the 5 second penalty might cost Verstappen during the pit stops if the pit stop isn't slick.

Lewis got another lucky break. If he doesnt cock up again, he will manage to climb in top 5.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows
