F1 fans hit twitter over Verstappen, Vettel penalties

The decision by Formula 1 race officials to penalise Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel with time penalties has predictably lead to the twitterverse lighting up.

Verstappen lost his podium place when he was penalised 5 seconds after he was adjudged to have ‘moved under braking’, a new rule introduced specifically for him.

Fans of the young Belgian-Dutch driver were not happy.

Sebastian Vettel also came in for some criticism following his astonishing outburst at F1 director Charlie Whiting.

But then Vettel was punished too.

Others, meanwhile commented on the new Formula 1 game – musical podium.

And some pointed out what they thought was bias.
