“Checo” Perez deserved the drive of the day accolade this past weekend, with a
sterling drive that ended in a second-place finish. After the safety car
restart, we saw some great wheel to wheel racing, but did Checo bend the rules
a little too far?
Middleton - motorsport analyst, Track This podcast panelist and TopGear SA
Director - thinks he deserved a five second penalty: “I don’t think it was
dangerous driving but according to the rules he should’ve gotten a penalty”
Track This panelist, and racing driver Tschops Sipuka has a different view: “It’s
fine as long as there is no blood drawn. It’s fine, they can just nudge a
little bit and take each other out a little bit, not so terribly that the other
guy is disadvantaged terribly.”
