Damon Hill and Johnny Herbert believe a more hands-off approach from officials to wheel-to-wheel racing would benefit the sport, as the debate continues over Sebastian Vettel's controversial Canadian GP sanction.

Vettel's five-second penalty, which lost him the victory to Lewis Hamilton, has reopened a long-running argument about the regulations concerning driver conduct on track and the type of incidents that should be investigated.

"My own view is that there was the option not to bring that penalty. No harm was done, no one actually collided," said Hill, the 1996 world champion.

Vettel: Penalty decision damaging F1 popularity

Vettel: Penalty decision damaging F1 popularity Sebastian Vettel says the steward’s decision to hand him a five-second time penalty for impeding Lewis Hamilton in the Canadian Grand Prix is risking killing the popularity of Formula 1. The German suffered a sudden snap of oversteer at the first chicane while leading on Lap 48, causing him to momentarily lose control of the car and cut the corner. The race stewards concluded after a review of the incident that Vettel had re-joined the circuit in front of Hamilton at Turn 4 in a dangerous manner, forcing the Briton off the track in avoidance.

Vettel rages at race-losing penalty

Vettel rages at race-losing penalty Sebastian Vettel raged at F1's officials and claimed they "stole the race" from Ferrari, before later moving Hamilton's first-placed marker board.

Two days after the Canadian GP, Formula 1 remains split over whether the penalty that cost Sebastian Vettel victory was right or wrong. Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel almost hit during the 2019 Canadian F 1 GP.

As the dust settles on Sebastian Vettel 's controversial penalty that cost him victory in the Canadian Grand Prix, Edd Straw, Scott Mitchell and Jonathan Noble debate the incident between Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, explaining why there was little else the stewards could do with F 1 's rulebook in its

"Lewis forced Sebastian into an error which I'm sure Sebastian would rather have avoided. Sebastian recovered himself to get back on the track and probably did try to stop Lewis from passing, but they were racing and we were denied the opportunity of seeing a very exciting final few laps.

"It should be in the power of those judging to say: 'No harm done, we'll just play on.'"

Vettel was punished on two counts: returning to the track 'unsafely' after running wide and then 'forcing another car off track'.

Hamilton: I would have done the same as Vettel

Hamilton: I would have done the same as Vettel Formula 1 world championship leader Lewis Hamilton admits he would have done the same as Sebastian Vettel in the incident which denied the Ferrari driver victory in the Canadian Grand Prix. Vettel was penalised by race stewards after going off the track while under pressure from Hamilton and re-joining in an unsafe manner that forced the Briton to avoid a collision. The German vented his anger at the decision post-race, commenting the current F1 rules lack “common sense” and his penalty as a “funny decision”. “I watched the replay, it was obviously very close,” said Hamilton, as quoted by RaceFans.net.

Vettel 's five-second penalty for forcing Lewis Hamilton off the track cost him a race victory in Montreal and sparked major controversy and debate , with many Vettel even claimed himself that he wished he drove in a different era, such is his dissatisfaction with certain aspects of modern F 1 and its rules .

The five-second penalty Vettel received when almost making contact with his Mercedes rival cost him a "The rule is the issue. Racing is what we want to see and I know safety is key but there was How the Sky F 1 team reacted Karun Chandhok: " I think it's harsh. When you see Vettel rejoin the track

Fellow Sky Sports F1 pundit Johnny Herbert has previously served on the stewards' panel as the driver representative and says: "In terms of rules that purely govern the racing on track, there are too many.

"The rules say you cannot crowd another car but racing, to a degree, is about intimidation and not making it easy for someone to overtake. 'Leaning' on someone is something I did in Formula Ford, Formula 3, Formula 1, sportscars, GT cars - that's part of racing.

"These are the very, very best drivers and they have the best judgements, so let them show their judgement and their skill. If they take someone off on to the grass, sure, then you need to have a word but you should be able to show your race craft."

Hill added: "If you were to go and ask Lewis and Sebastian 'do you think you could conduct yourself sportingly and race hard and fair for the length of a grand prix without crashing into each other?' they'd say 'yes'.

Brawn: No 'hidden agenda' in Vettel call

Brawn: No 'hidden agenda' in Vettel call Ross Brawn says he understands the reaction to Sebastian Vettel's Canadian GP penalty but insists there was "no hidden agenda" from stewards.

Formula One could be more transparent about stewards’ decisions but there was no hidden agenda behind the penalty that cost Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel victory in Canada, the sport’s managing director Ross The F 1 chief recognised the controversial five-second penalty had incited furious debate .

Did Vettel really deserve the five-second penalty which race stewards inflicted upon him? It was a controversial decision that denied Sebastian Vettel a Canadian GP victory, and one that has stirred plenty of debate .

"They are probably the most-skilled racing drivers in the world. They can do it, so you don't want intervention if it's not necessary.

"If one of them deliberately crashes into the other and it's obvious that's what has happened, then they need a penalty. But in this case, there was no harm done. Lewis narrowly escaped taking his front wing off, but he went for the gap, as much as Seb tried to defend it."

Wolff would welcome 'harder racing'While the stewards' ruling fell in his team's favour on this occasion, and he agrees that the letter of the law was applied correctly, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says he would be open to more relaxed regulations in future.

"The penalty was what the rules say and the stewards acted according to the rules," said Wolff.

"If we are not happy with the rules because we like harder racing, count me in. Then the stewards would take another decision because the rule would be a different one. So let's look at the rules and see how we can get it right for 2021 so we encourage hard racing. Then the verdict would have been a different one."

Vettel doubles down on Ferrari's Canadian GP penalty stance

Vettel doubles down on Ferrari's Canadian GP penalty stance Sebastian Vettel coyly avoided questions about his Canadian Grand Prix penalty and his Ferrari Formula 1 team's Friday hearing in France, as he reiterated his belief he did nothing wrong . Ferrari has been summoned to the stewards tomorrow at Paul Ricard to discuss its request for a review of the incident where Vettel ran across the grass in Montreal and rejoined just as Lewis Hamilton tried to pass him for the lead.

Sebastian Vettel deserved his Canadian GP penalty after "buckling under pressure" from Lewis Hamilton, according to Monday's newspapers. Debate over whether Vettel warranted the five-second penalty that cost him the race victory has rippled through the F 1 paddock - with the Sky F 1 pundits

Nico Rosberg says Sebastian Vettel ’s Canadian GP penalty was “fully deserved” for re-joining the track in an unsafe manner. In a post-race video review, the 2016 F 1 world champion says he felt in the minority for backing the decision to penalise Vettel for his move to defend his lead during the Canada

Wolff added: "It's very difficult for stewards to interpret regulations so everybody's satisfied. On that particular incident you can maybe judge 60-40 either side.

"But what we must not do is put the stewards under pressure in a way that we struggle even more in the future to come up with decisions. We need consistent decision making from the stewards and we need to support the stewards in their objective to reach that. Sometimes it goes for you, sometimes it goes against you."
