Verstappen very much ran Bottas wide off of turn 1 and pretty much forced him off the track on the small straight heading into turn 2. When the FIA first said that they were going to give greater leniency to Lap 1 incidents, it was only a matter of time before someone started to abuse it.Just another thought, but has anyone noticed how far out Max went on turn 1? I know Bottas wasn't in a great spot there to begin with, and I'm still looking for a good shot of it, but it looks like Max ran all the way to the outside of the track. Despite having Bottas on his outside. Just seems like the first half of lap 1 in the GPs seem to really be 'free for all' with no penalties as there have been lots of these type moves by lots of drivers this season.
