Im with you.... that (three place penalty) equates to one penalty position for each car whose race he destroyed. Not enough.

It certainly seems that way. I can't see Haas putting up with his mistakes for much longer.

Maybe sooner rather than later.... it seems Danny Ric may face more penalties according to Newey
Quote:
“He will definitely be taking some penalties in Montreal, we haven’t heard at the moment just how many.”

“One of things there is whether the battery was damaged or not in Monaco, so until we know that from Renault we don’t know exactly what we’re facing.”

one race should not negatively affect the next race to such a degree....although it must be said that i do look forward to seeing DR tear through the field as a result.

i know people dont like 'artificial rules' but it has to be said that races tend to be more interesting with out of position cars.

so im not entirely sure how i feel about the whole penalty system and reduced PU part allotments.

i guess if anything i just wished that Merc and Ferrari would eat more of these grid penalties for their title contention drivers.

Maybe the championship should switch from points gain from finishing in the top ten to grid penalty points, ridiculous but that appears to be what the regulations are causing. Or maybe they are handing them out like sweets in order to get some overtaking and excitement in the races.

Imagine if football teams had penalties for the players having new boots through the season...the whole penalty thing in F1 is just another reason its hard to watch F1 these days.

i get the analogy but there is a massive difference in price between shoes and engines...and i believe players get free shoes from their apparel sponsors anyways.

if free engine changes were allowed in F1, Merc would show up with a fresh unit every race and they would, all things being equal, have won even more races...rather this would be like if only one football team was allowed to wear shoes and everyone else had to play barefoot.

unfortunately its been the likes of Honda drivers and to a lessor extent the Renault drivers which have had to suffer the brunt of these penalties so as a fan i also do feel the frustration.

i just also think i would be more frustrated with the sport if Merc were able to fully spend their way to victory...which i guess is what we have now anyways so this is all rather moot.
