I think that's a fair penalty myself. If that was me getting overtaken by someone cutting the inside of a corner with all 4 wheels off the track I'd be fucking livid.

Sorry can somebody explain? Was Verstappen penalised for safety reasons? How can he control having 4 wheels off the track? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

No, he very marginally cut a corner, nothing to do with safety. Thatís all there was to it, the issue is that many drivers did the same thing without punishment.

Ah ok thanks makes sense, just assumed the '4 wheels off the track' was a safety issue at first.

the issue, as always, is the inconsistency.

the track is the bit between the white lines. it should be more rigidly enforced.

Just watched the race and I did think he cut the corner to overtake Kimi as he did it, was wondering what the officials thought about it.

All 4 wheels were on/over the red and whites and was the only way he could gain the place, clear advantage.  Ferrari would've complained and you can't really argue against it, imo anyway.

Can't blame Max for doing it, was a good move and is pretty harsh for him.  It is what it is though.
