Aston Martin wants to see more consistency in the handling of penalties after Max Verstappen appeared to get away with his impeding incidents at the Singapore Grand Prix.
Verstappen was summoned by the stewards following three separate incidents during qualifying, one of which was the impeding of Yuki Tsunoda in Q2.
But the Red Bull driver escaped all of the investigations without being handed a grid drop, instead receiving two driving reprimands and a €5,000 fine.
However, some pointed towards other impeding incidents in the past and drivers receiving three-place grid penalties.
The stewards claimed that neither Tsunoda or an AlphaTauri team representative were present at the hearing, however, this was due to the FIA not sending the team a formal summons regarding the incident rather than AlphaTauri simply not turning up.

Verstappen: I have good reasons for what I did
Aston Martin Performance Director, Tom McCullough, believes the FIA stewards should look at being more consistent when handing out penalties.
"The stewards have all the information. Obviously from our side when you've been impeded it's frustrating, but we let the stewards do their job," he told media, including RacingNews365.
"All we want is consistency event-to-event, it's the fans want, it's what everybody wants, isn't it? I think that's the big question."
When asked about the reprimands and lack of consistency, Verstappen responded: "I think I have very good explanations and reasonings for what I did, not every case is the same."
