VIDEO: Steiner and Magnussen rant at 'idiotic' steward

Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has labelled the steward who gave Kevin Magnussen a penalty during the Russian Grand Prix as “stupid” and “idiotic”.

Whilst battling with Sergio Perez’s Racing Point, Magnussen was forced off the track and, in his attempts to get back in line, failed to go the correct way around the safety bollard, which broke regulations.

The five-second penalty he was given for the incident contributed to him finishing ninth instead of eighth, but Steiner remains content with the points finish even if, in his opinion, the penalty was wrongfully given.

"Kevin (Magnussen), at the end, lost a position, then he was given a five-second penalty – which I think was completely inappropriate,” he said after the race in Sochi.

“Anyway, we got two points for ninth place, that’s better than nothing. Kevin fought very strongly at the end and the whole team worked hard for these points.”

“Unfortunately, Romain (Grosjean) was caught up in a crash on the first lap which ended his day, but obviously no penalties were given there, it’s all good.”
