What about Di Resta, Riccardo, Brundle and others. I guess their opinions (I'm pretty sure they have race experience) are irrelevant? Or is it because they don't fit your narrative? I was expecting the decision to go against him, just like nothing happened to Hamilton when Verstappen when into the wall. Either way, Verstappen needs to take a new power unit (due to the incident with Hamilton) so he'll take that. The 3 place penalty is a moot point.
