F1 2019: Sebastian Vettel Canada Grand Prix penalty, Daniel Ricciardo slammed

Published

on

Daniel Ricciardo should be penalised for a “dirty” move during the Canadian Grand Prix, according to Formula 1 legend Jacques Villeneuve.

Ricciardo steered his Renault through his best weekend of the year, finishing sixth.

However, the Australian star’s vital championship points are now under a cloud after Villeneuve on Tuesday night made fresh calls for him to face a punishment from FIA officials.

Ricciardo’s early-race defensive thrusts to block Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas were overshadowed by the huge drama surrounding the stewards’ decision to smack Sebastian Vettel with a five-second penalty which saw him surrender the race to championship leader Lewis Hamilton, despite crossing the line first.

Ferrari are appealing the decision of the stewards.
