Lewis Hamilton thinks young drivers like Charles Leclerc 'get away with a lot'
Ferrari won the Italian Grand Prix for the first time since 2010 with Charles Leclerc this September. But while everyone from the Ferrari paddock to the die hard 'tifosi' were thrilled, one man was not.
Lewis Hamilton, who came third at Monza, said in the post race interview:
“It doesn’t really matter what I think,” said Hamilton. “I don’t really have anything to say about it. We’ve gone over and over it multiple times, it’s pointless me bringing it up. I avoided the collision, and just kept focusing on trying to get close again.
“It seems like the new generation get away with a lot more in that space, of how they manoeuvre their car compared to I’d say the more experienced drivers. But it’s good knowledge, now I know, and I look forward to the next one.”
Hamilton was unhappy at the stewards decision to give young Charles Leclerc only a warning instead of a penalty for going wide while defending his first place position.
“We’ve just constantly asked for consistency,” said Hamilton of the stewards. “There was a rule put in place, and then it wasn’t abided by today. They used different consequences for the rule today. I don’t know why that was the case. I guess the stewards woke up on a different side of the bed this morning, I don’t know.”
