Poll: Should F1 stewards have been harsher on Verstappen?

The Dutchman's driving style has come under fire once again after the Austrian GP clash.

Since the collision on Lap 64 of the Austrian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen has drawn criticism over his driving style and moving under braking. 

The stewards felt he was to blame for squeezing out Lando Norris at Turn 3, with the contact putting Norris out and costing Verstappen another win, finishing fifth. 

He was also with two penalty points, as McLaren boss Andrea Stella claimed the Verstappen's tendencies for late moves and aggressive driving had not been stamped out in 2021 in the title fight against Lewis Hamilton. 

That is something Red Bull chief Christian Horner rejected.

But what do you think? After nearly 70,000 of you voted to put the blame on Verstappen - we want to know if you think the stewards have been harsh enough on him?
