Stewards compared Verstappen-Leclerc incident to 2016 Rosberg-Hamilton case | 2019 Austrian Grand Prix

The collision between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at turn three at the Red Bull Ring three years ago was among the past cases considered by the stewards who ruled on the similar incident between Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc today.
Rosberg was given a 10-second time penalty for forcing Hamilton off the track while they fought for the lead, while Verstappen was cleared of causing a collision with Leclerc.
Masi indicated a key difference between Verstappen and Rosberg’s driving in the incidents was that Rosberg appeared to be looking across towards Hamilton to force him off-track.
