Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says the rules should be adapted to provide more on-track racing post 2021.
The Canadian Grand Prix last weekend saw big controversy as Sebastian Vettel was given a five-second time penalty, costing him the race, after an incident involving Lewis Hamilton.
The German ace went wide at the turn three chicane and came back on the track with no grip forcing Hamilton to take evasive action – and stewards deemed the move as unsafe and subsequently punished Vettel.
Wolff has defended the stewards at the Montreal circuit for simply applying the rules but says they must be altered to allow for more aggression and excitement on the track.
The penalty was what the rules say,
And the stewards acted I think according to the rules.
If we’re not happy with the rules because we like harder racing, count me in.
Then the stewards will take another decision because the rules will be different.
Let’s look at the rules and see how we can get it right for 2021 so we can encourage hard racing.
Then the verdict would have been different.
