There was no flashing yellow light on Max's steering wheel AND on the last lap of quali you are concentrating on improving your time. Go figure.
Flags are drilled into you from day one on the track. Go back and watch the press conference. He was fully aware and willfully ignored the flags and the situation. The sanctions were actually deserved and probably lenient.

If you ignore flags anywhere else you would be immediately pitched from the track.

Tyre performance graphic is just a joke. Liberty Media should reconsider this BS.

In T1 Lewis steered in to MAX . And touched him 2-3 times . Further investigation is not required ?!?!

Of course. There is never a scenario where your guy could have done something different. Max is not all that. Just move on. If he was he’d do better and you wouldn’t need to blame a different driver every other week.

The stewards have just issues a 10 second penalty to Kvyat for causing a collision. He is now demoted to 11th, moving Stroll and Hulkenbery to 9th and 10th respectively.

Nope, and rightly so. That was just very hard racing at the first set of corners. Hamilton was fighting for grip, the touching was unintentional.

Also, Lewis got into that position because Vettel kept turning in on him on the pit straight, and he had to lift off in order to avoid an accident.

Anyway, this race is fast becoming one of my least favourite to watch. Because of the high temps, you never really have a chance to get close and try to over take someone. Unless you are about a second a lap faster, which is never going to happen among the front guys.

I agree with that penalty, he was nowhere near enough Hulkenburg to go far that corner.

Agreed. It looked like a last ditch effort to get the position and he ended up causing an accident in the process.
