I feel so bad for Albon
I do feel bad for him but in my mind, it was a racing incident.
If you watch the onboard of Hamilton's car, his steering wheel input never went from the hard right
position.
Albon was clearly quicker and could have done that attempt after the corner.
It was a bit ambitious there.
Even the slightest understeer was going to end in tears at that corner.

It was not malicious or anything, but a stupid mistake from Lewis, he just went onto the gas too early when he already had lost the fight. He couldnt accept his defeat, so the penalty was deserved imo
