anyone else think Maldanado's penalty was ridiculous?
Di resta left the door wide open, infact he took the door off the hinge it was that open. Maldanado got a tiny slide and there was hardly any contact, di resta jerked left AFTER contact was made. He wasnt pushed, he jerked. If you watch the video, contact is made then di rest over-reacts massively left;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbUdkMyxLXI
Now, if maldanado was getting a penalty for 'shoving' someone off the road, is it worse than this which wasnt penalised;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC05YfPIBVc
Now, if were saying contact is the reason for being penalised, why werent these penalised for example;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGjOnGov3E8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHsyDzMGhbo
THIS, wasnt even penalised and rightfully so;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz3EKUgVgsw
Theres no sense in the penalty. On a track where overtaking is hard, the track is narrow with lots of run off, a genuine good move down the inside on invisibleresta with a small slide, which happens, deserves a penalty? No chance. We already had a boring procession where you couldnt overtake unless your seconds quicker than the car infront or through the pits, so one of the only genuine moves gets penalise, when contact was minute and di resta jerked away.
Utter ridiculous penalty.
