Vettel can't be too happy about this. He might have two people to beat to win this race.

Pretty open-and-shut penalty, from my point of view. Max couldn't have made the pass without leaving the track, he wasn't forced off track, and he didn't return the position. How is that not a penalty, honestly? Because it goes against the precedent set in 2016 where Verstappen can do whatever he w...
