Lewis Hamilton praised the stewards for penalizing Max Verstappen for ignoring double-waved yellow flags at the Qatar Grand Prix.
- Verstappen received a 5-place grid penalty for ignoring double-waved yellow flags as Pierre Gasly stopped on the start/finish straight due to a puncture.
- Hamilton praised the stewards for their consistency, recalling back to his own fault in Austria earlier.
What he said:
- “My only reaction is consistency is key. Look in Austria, I got a three-place penalty for a single yellow flag that I didn’t see.”
- “Good that they stick to the book and focus on my job.”
