To add to it Maldonado thinks the stewards are stricter this season...hate to break it to the guy, but does he even watch the video if his crashes? Most of them are desperate dives into a corner.
"The rules are the same but the way the stewards were with the drivers was more flexible [last year," Maldonado said. "Maybe this year they seem to be more hard; not only for me but for everyone. It seems to be that they like no contact in the race or anything close to the limit. We need to respect that. I think that's one change for this year, because even last year they were not so hard on that. But we need to adapt ourselves to the stewards and that's it. The best result is to not be in the stewards' room."
