Lewis Hamilton said that the punishment received at the Russian Grand Prix was “ridiculous”.
Hamilton said to Sky Sports: "They want to stop me, don't they?" Then he added that he did not mean that the penalty decision was made for him personally, but to "maintain the passion of the game."
"An interesting decision," Hamilton said. "In general, the penalties they gave people this year (2 points for Hamilton's super license) are ridiculous."
"Penalties are usually because... I think from a driver's perspective, if you put others in danger, they should be penalized."
"If you bump into someone, of course you should get a penalty. I didn't hurt anyone, and I didn't hurt anyone, so in the end this was an absurd decision."
He added: "Whenever the team runs ahead, they will be subject to strict inspections. Everything in our car will be repeatedly checked. They will change the rules, such as the engine rules. Many things will make the race more full. Passion, I think."
"I don’t know if the rules of what happened today are related to this, but it’s the natural feeling. It feels like we are fighting in adversity. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve never encountered adversity before, so we just keep fighting with our heads down. , Meticulous."
