    they sure did unnecessarily. And it’s frustrating to hear the skyF1 crew so giddy about it as it’s going to “spice up the race” smh
    The whole thing is absurd and unprecedented

    Well they have effectively messed with the battle at the sharp end as they have clearly removed him from the fight at the sharp end. We could have still enjoyed a close battle at the sharp end with a 5 sec penalty and a reprimand.

    Lol. Look at Bottas celebrating like he actually did something in this race. As if the stewards didn’t gift him the race. “Never give up” he says. Lmao.

    I can't blame Bottas, but he was gifted this race by Mika Salo.

    The whole thing reeks of stinking fish. They have not only messed with the race, they are messing with the championship. Fofr the sake of a harmless practise race start in a safeplace l might bad, this bad batch of race stewards have taken Hamilton to with 2 points of a race ban within one race. This is an abuse of the system.

    Update: https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/a...mvnYWl1B9.html

    they retracted the penalty points. But the damage was done. Turns out his team instructed him to perform the practice start at that spot: still it should have been a warning at the very most. The whole thing is ridiculous and they are doing their best to try and stop him. Still find the exuberance from Bottas funny. Talking about silencing his critics. 🤷🏻

    A Finnish Stewart gifting a Finnish driver? Who’d have thunk? They have rescinded Hamilton’s penalty points. I felt this was OTT imo and was a sure sign National favouritism was at work. 5 second penalty was enough for what was two very minor infringements
    Oh, and Mika Salo should never be allowed in The Stewards room again since he clearly cannot leave his biases behind him.
