        Although he tried to make the race bearable, I must admit that he deserved those penalties. On this occasion I think the penalties were fair.

            Riccardo should join NASCAR, at least there he wouldn't receive such stupid penalties. Shame on you F1!

              Well in Nascar they mostly race on lame ASS oval tracks so these kind of situations would not exist there in first place....

              Penalized for what? These things happen, it's race.

                Well the rules are quite clear...if you go out of the track, you are supposed to return back so that no other driver has to take evasive maneuver because of that.

                And as for 2nd, he clearly overtook Kimi by using the off-track limits...if there had been grass or gravel there, he would not have been able to done that move in the first place....on track like this, those white lines clearly mark the edge of the track and you just simply CANT overtake another driver by going off track, you need to stay withing track limits if you want to overtake someone.

              Both situations are not that straight-forward as you explained in video, but apart from that, you can't just give 5 seconds penalties for everything. You could give him 1.5 second penalty for 1st situation, and 2nd one is just, pure racing, if both drivers are on straight and you manage to overtake someone by going "off" track, you should give him 5 second award, this was just pure racing and probably best 30 seconds in 2019 season. F1 is already boring with one team being on top due to car regulations, etc., and now you are killing what left of it with your penalties and stewards that are just.... Why don't you put ex-F1 drivers instead of stewards, their judgment wouldn't be that much questionable.

                Balnazzardi  4 months back

                1,5 seconds is literally nothing....that is why 5 seconds is the smallest penalty, cause 5 seconds can actually matter at the end of the race if the gaps are small.

                Balnazzardi I understand the rules and regulations but that one should not be there it should only be there for abuse of all wheels off track not a one or two time use which is just racing in my opinion

              • Balnazzardi
                Balnazzardi  4 months back

                Then you clearly have not read the rules...especially on the latter case where Ricciardo clearly used off-side of the track to overtake Kimi and normal race track that has proper grass or gravel areas outside the track (like Red Bull Ring) he would not have been able to make that move in the first place.

              The FIA is ridiculous for Vettel penalty and verstappen penalty in Canada and Monaco .spoiling the whole race and letting Mercedes go and get the championship .just like the new tyre regulations that have only been changed for Mercedes.But that penalty was right

                      I said it already and I'm saying it again, Ricciardo is a stupid driver who gets a lot of paid advertising

                        Where da fuck he "gained a lasting advantage" by go off track to pass Kimi?

                          Easy...since Ricciardo used offside of the track, Kimi could not defend his position anymore by going further to the right. In normal race track there would have been grass or gravel there, but since there was not Ricciardo took advantage of this shitty design of Paul Ricard track and used outside of the track to overtake Kimi. On this track even if the outside of the track might be dirtier, it doesnt slow you down one bit if you are overtaking some-one from there..

                            Just more proof this circuit is dumb and hurts my eyes. Even Magny-Cours was notorious for being a weird circuit. Strange that the French can't seem to make a decent F1 track.

                                    For that should have been given a drive thru penalty since both fouls were in the same sector.

                                        The maFIA is a fucking shit. The second penalty makes no sense, he drove off-track, but he overtook him on track... Kimi literally moved away ffs you're ruining races, and this one was already bullshit so imagine it. Fuck you.

                                            F1 has become like FE. They missing all action and then they change the results. Just becaus.

                                              If the first penalty is a mistake against the rules, Its the same rule as last year but if this the way this season alot of penalty's will be shown this season. if tey did the same for 2018 every drive that had a battle in a chicane would see a penalty. Not sure i like it. I agree with the second penalty.

                                                            Why having these blue marks on the straights? put grass or gravel. If you keep it asphalt, then don't complain about drivers going there. If there was a 4 wide, people would have done the same thing. BTW, I don't think Ricciardo actually pushed Norris out of track. I think Lando just bailed out before that.

He had to make the wide turn because of the other driver who did not brake safely after losing his position to Ricciardo. To avoid an accident he had to extend the curve. The second penalty I think was deserved.

It's utter shit, the only positive side I can think of is the multiple technical corners, which at least give good drivers a chance to make a difference. The rest is abysmal: useless asphalt run-offs, ugly colored stripes, different layouts crossing on top of each other, non-memorable non-iconic boring layout that you have to force your brain to learn.
                                                                                      Yeah, asphalt run-offs are the safest, but what is the point of having them in only one or two circuits of the calendar? I think they forgot they are letting drivers reach 300 km/h in Monza's DRS zone with literally one meter of grass separating them from the wall.
