Ricardo enters the circle of controversy


Berlin – Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricardo has entered into controversy over the penalty of German driver Sebastian Vettel during the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Vettel was punished by race observers by adding 5 seconds to its time after it caused the collision of rival Lewis Hamilton, the driver of Mercedes, track fencing, because of a leadership error. The penalty was the loss of Vettel for the race, although he first reached the finish line. Hamilton's win was for Mercedes to continue to dominate, winning all the seven races held so far in the world championship this season.

Ricardo said that Hamilton had not received a penalty despite a similar mistake during the 2016 season, while Ferrari filed an appeal against the penalty of his driver.

"I do not think he could have behaved differently, which led us to take the decision to appeal against the penalty," said Ferrari chief Mattia Pinotto, commenting on Vettel's mistake.

A number of drivers showed their support for Vettel, including Ricardo, who told reporters: "I was exposed to a similar (false) attitude by Louis in 2016 in Monte Carlo."

He said the Briton had made a mistake that caused his car to hit a roadblock. "He did not receive a penalty. This was a good thing. It was a tough race. "
