    You know it's been a terrible race when waiting for the post-race penalties is more exciting than the race itself.

    I'm quite OK with the penalties for Ricciardo as both were fairly clear-cut. After it's been pointed out that the stewards had no chance but to punish Vettel in the Canadian GP according to the letter of the law, the incident with Ricciardo and Norris is very straightforward, especially when you consider that it was a much worse situation as he caused Lando to lose three or four positions. On top of that, the pass on Räikkönen is the kind of move that we've already seen punished, such as the case with Verstappen in Austin a couple of years ago.

    You may not agree with the way the regulations are written, but with them as they are, these have been the right calls from the stewards, and also consistent with previous decisions.

    Austria will be interesting in this regard, as it is a track where Hamilton has never done particularly well (only one win in five attempts), whereas Bottas always seems to excel there.

    I’m okay with these penalties as well as at least it’s consistent with Canada and other races. I think his finishing position should have been swapped with Lando though if we were being really fair and both drivers would have received very well deserved points as well but those aren’t the rules. Inconsistency in penalties boils my piss more than anything else so the penalties are fine for me.

    Provisionally, I don't have a problem with Ricciardo's penalties. I do think Norris didn't really try his best to get back on track. It didn't seem to take much to encourage him to go off track.

    Idk if it's been discussed elsewhere, but should be Raikkonen done for cutting the corner as well, therefor nullifying Ricciardo's penalties for getting by him?

    You are gonna have to provide a better evidence than that to support your argument. Based on that pic, Kimi has nothing to answer for.
