I'm not so sure on that. Looked kind of like the left move happened as contact happened on Karun's analysis. He wasn't giving room, he was steering into the spin.Max is a hot head and I don’t agree with his IG post, but not sure how you can watch the footage and think that wreck is anything but Lewis’ fault. Max even spun his wheel left to give room for Lewis, which he didn’t have to do, while Lewis left his foot in it and didn’t take the additional room to the right that he had. It was Max’ right to the line, and Lewis pitted him.
I expected 10 seconds, but expected a stop and go. given what other penalties there have been this year ‘for safety,’ this one definitely seemed very light - that was a BAD accident. I think Lewis got the serious benefit of being Lewis and it being the GB GP
None of it happens if Max doesn't keep moving to the right trying to squeeze Lewis off when he realized Lewis didn't bite on the "sure go around the outside" block he threw. He put both cars in a position to not make the apex. It made it so Max had to cut harder across to not lose exit speed and it made it so Lewis was never gonna get down to the apex because he was too shallow on entry angle. Like I said both bullheaded drivers not giving any quarter, and is the definition of racing incident.
Lewis' penalty was probably based on the fact that he didn't brake and was probably still accelerating into the turn. It was called "causing a collision". He didn't make enough of an effort to back out, but he wasn't completely at fault since they gave him the second lightest penalty possible. And there would be no point to give Max any penalty, but had both cars survived maybe both would get penalized there.
At the end of the day, that wreck started in Luffield. When Lewis ran wide, squared off Woodcote and got the better run onto Wellington Straight and Max decided to continue to block, that's what sealed the wreck. Honestly had Max just went back to the racing line when Lewis didn't go outside, he would have gotten to Maggotts first, and even if they were side by side there he was way faster there all weekend and on the inside. Lewis knew that which is why he threw it up the inside. He knew if Max got to Maggotts/Becketts first it was over.
