Stewards more lenient when team-mates clash – Masi

Formula 1’s Race Director Michael Masi says stewards tend to be more lenient in dealing with clashes between team-mates, in explaining why no penalty was issued to Charles Leclerc. Leclerc hit the back of team-mate Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari at Turn 3 on the opening lap of Formula 1’s Styrian Grand Prix, leaving both cars with terminal damage. Stewards noted the collision but opted against further investigation. Leclerc immediately accepted full responsibility and apologised to both Vettel and Ferrari.
