Mercedes' chief Toto Wolff says fans are wrong to criticise the stewards for the penalty they imposed on Sebastian Vettel, and their anger should instead be directed at the rules.
However Wolff insists they have simply followed the rulebook and suggested that the rules themselves may need to be addressed in the future if fans want hard racing to go unpunished.
Then the stewards will take another decision because the rule will be a different one.
"So let’s look at the rules and see how we can get it right so we encourage hard racing and then the verdict will be a different one."
Though the Austrian warned that changing the rules to appease everyone will never be easy and such decisions will always have fans on either side of the fence complaining that their team or driver has been hard done by.
