Max twice ran deep in battles with Lewis at Turn 1 and was asked to give the position back on both occasions – receiving a five-second time penalty for gaining an advantage off the track.
In the most controversial moment of the Grand Prix, Max was found guilty after the race of brake checking Hamilton on Lap 37 – after slowing down to let the Brit through resulting in a ten-second penalty.
Lewis was reluctant to pass Max before the DRS line so he could get the speed advantage on the main straight, before the Dutchman applied the brakes and the Brit damaged his front wing after clipping the rear of the Red Bull.
Reflecting on the race on Thursday, Max said that ‘clearly things don’t apply for everyone’.
Soos gerapporteer deur Autosport, hy het gesê: ‘The things that I did in terms of defending, two other guys in terms of racing also did, and they didn’t even get a mention or a penalty.
‘So I don’t understand, because I thought I was just racing hard. What happened for me didn’t deserve any penalty, and clearly the other two people who did it, they didn’t get one, but clearly it’s only me who gets it.
'Natuurlik, fighting at the front, people are a bit more critical I guess, but for me I don’t understand.’The 24-year-old went on to add: ‘I think from my side, what is unfair [is] that I am treated differently to other drivers.’
