Lewis Hamilton praised the stewards for penalizing Max Verstappen for ignoring double-waved yellow flags at the Qatar Grand Prix.

Details:

  • 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.”
