In the previous race of Azerbaijan Sebastian Vettel had bumped his car into Hamilton’s car. Hamilton was the leader of the race. He was driving behind the safety car.
Jonathan McEvoy said “The cowardly stewards gave Vettel a 10-second stop-go penalty. A miserly punishment for such law-breaking as the world was watching. He should have been black-flagged. That is to say, disqualified, rather than allowed to extend his championship lead by finishing two-tenths of a second ahead of fifth-placed Hamilton.

“For the sake of the safety of the other drivers, a man so out of control should not have been allowed to continue.”
The Sun followed a similar theme, adding that a chaotic Azerbaijan GP was one of the “craziest races in years.”
“Forget F1, this was more like Wacky Races with Sebastian Vettel playing the role of Dick Dastardly.” Wrote motorsport correspondent Ben Hunt.
“The Azerbaijan GP was one of the most incident-packed races in years with crashes, bust-ups, three safety cars … it was even stopped with too much debris on the track from all the crashes.”
