Tension at Ferrari, Lap 1 Chaos and More! Jolyon Palmer On The 2019 Russian Grand Prix
Where's the black and white flag for Magnusen?
I'd just like to add a comment from that video that says it all really:

Palmer hits the nail on the head again.
There is again inconsistancy in awarding penalties.
The Black and White flag shown to Leclerc was a jokeRunningHamiltion out of road at 180mph was both deliberate and Dangerous.Its not racing its called being a c**t!
And about the level of driving you'd expect at a turn up and drive kart track.
Only Hamilton's reading of that situation avoided what could have been a nasty accident.
The rules state that leaving the road and gaining an avantage earns you a penaly.
Losing both a time and places doesn't equate to a net gain.
The stewards also need to analyze if the action had any safety implications.
Not merely that they previously decided that for potential safety reasons you go round a couple of bollards. The question here is was there other cars close on track other than Perez. and did KMags excursion put those drivers at risk..
There appeared to be no other cars close by on track and Perez was long gone so other than going the wrong side of a bollard put there to cause a loss in time and make rejoining more predictable what problem did it actually cause.Monza We were told that Leclerc escaped a penalty because there was no collision where as Both Vettel and Stroll's actions caused collisions.
So if thats the case then if the rule is being breached in a situation other than it was implemented to manage then it should result in a black and white flag.
