Michael Masi has revealed the process of giving penalties after such incidents like the one between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton at the Italian GP.
Why it matters: Red Bull driver got a 3-place grid penalty for the Russian GP for causing a collision on Sunday.
- FIA race director believes that the Monza incident should not be compared with the Silverstone one.
- Masi admits Verstappen would have had a time penalty if he had continued the race.
What he had to say:
- “You need to look at it on the basis of, if they had continued, it would have been the time penalty in the race.
- “So at Silverstone… you can’t compare them at all. You’ve got two cars taken out in one incident versus one car taken out in another incident.”
