Vettel penalty backlash had no effect on stewarding – Masi | 2019 Canadian Grand Prix

The backlash over the penalty which cost Sebastian Vettel victory in the Canadian Grand Prix hasn’t influenced subsequent decisions by the stewards, says FIA race director Michael Masi.
However Masi, who took over as race director from the late Charlie Whiting at the beginning of the season, said he does not feel the backlash has put himself or the stewards who makepenalty decisions under any greater pressure.
Following the Canadian Grand Prix incident Kimi Raikkonen questioned why the penalty had been given when “they keep telling us this year that we are more free to race”.
