Vettel’s Victory Stolen by the Stewards
9th June 2019
Find out how you did the Canadian Fantasy GP
Sebastian Vettel was rightly downbeat on the podium after driving a fantastic race from P1, keeping a charging Hamilton behind for 70 laps. Unfortunately for Ferrari and Vettel the stewards deemed an incident where he lost the car and rejoined the track to be unsafe and handed a 5 seconds time penalty.
This essentially gifted Hamilton the victory and almost gave Leclerc and net 2nd place.
We’re fans of Formula 1 itself here at Fantasy GP and simply believe that was an unfair ruling for Seb and Ferrari, but ultimately it stole a great battle for the win from us and the millions of fans tuning in.
Putting this latest debacle to one side, it was a decent race in Montreal and saw some great drives and a few impressive overtakes. Lance Stroll was the Fantasy GP driver of the day with a massive 24 bonus points for his slow and steady strategy giving him solid P9 at the chequered flag, great news for
Jordan, Force India, Racing Point.
