Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has said that he thinks gravel traps would be a perfect solution to stop drivers cutting corners.
Horner thinks that gravel traps, which have also been criticised in recent years, would of prevented or penalised the drivers for making the mistake.
"I definitely think there’s an argument for a gravel trap because if you end up in the gravel you either lose an enormous amount of time or you’re out of the race,” Horner said.
“I really think it’s something that should be looked at for corners such as Turn 1 to see if gravel is a better deterrent than large tarmac run-off areas."
“It remains too open to interpretation because why was Max’s move any different to Lewis at the chicane in Monte Carlo or Lewis on lap one here?”
“You’re leaving it constantly up to stewards interpretation on individual events. If there’s a gravel trap there they pay the price, it’s as simple as that,” concluded Horner
