Hamilton: Verstappen acted dangerously, the FIA must be strict
Lewis Hamilton believes that Max Verstappen deserved punishment for ignoring yellow flags, and in Britain's view, the FIA should take a sharp stance in such cases, as it is a behavior that threatens both racing and line workers.
Although the FIA initially did not intend to investigate the breach of the yellow flag rule afforded by Max Verstappen in the pre-race qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix, the commissioners nevertheless began to investigate after Verstappen was alone in a press conference admitted that he had not slowed down after Valtteri Bottas collided.
Hamilton is convinced that the sentence is justified:
“I think the FIA should take a strict stance in such cases. I remember one case in a GP2 race where Pastor Maldonado hit a lane worker who risked his life saving a racer. The problem is we have racers who don't care about anyone else. Verstapp didn't even have to take the round, as the pole web page was already provided online. He acted dangerously and the FIA must be strict. ”
