You must have been watching a completely different scenario.When they turned in, Max was ahead on the inside so had right of way. It's the risk you run
Lewis has already made the pass & has the racing line. Lewis is still clearly ahead when they turn in. The only reason Max gets alongside is b/c he brakes later than necessary which forces not only Lewis off the line, but he himself which has been a noted issue; you shouldn't be trying a defensive move if it results in you going off as well. Alongside the fact you're not allowed to defend by weaving back-and-forth, something Max also did and got a flag for.
