Also keep in mind that in addition to the retirements in 2018, Ricciardo also had grid penalties in: Australia - 3 places - failing to slow down for red flag Germany - 20 places - exceeding element quotas I...

Sadly I think something like reverse grids are inevitable, especially if 1 team at a time continues to dominate the championships as has been the case since 2010.

Well they have confirmed Giovinazzi's penalty. If Hamilton doesn't get the same, that is very inconsistent. The two of the left are incredibly obvious for the drivers at that speed. If Mercedes are defending themselves about the lack of light at the pit lane, then that was the same for giovinazzi. ...
