Former Formula 1 driver Vitaly Petrov considers the punishment too red for the Red Bull pilot Max Verstappen, who ignored the yellow flags during the qualification of the Mexican Grand Prix.
The Dutchman did not slow down when a dangerous situation arose due to the accident of the Mercedes pilot Valtteri Bottas.
– 3 positions for the yellow flag? It's ridiculously simple! And if you flew into Bottas? – Petrov wrote on his Twitter page.
According to the results of the investigation of the stewards, Verstappen was fined three positions at the start of the upcoming race, and also received two penalty points. Thus, the Dutchman lost the pole position.
The Mexican Grand Prix will be held on October 27th.
