I miss how harsh penalties for multiple infringements used to be. Speeding in the pitlane, jump starts and mechanics on the grid too long used to be a 10 second stop go penalty and crossing the white line at pit exit and unsafe releases used to cop a drive through penalty. They really used to punish drivers for things like that and usually meant you’d be out of contention for even a point.

Now drivers only get 5 or 10 seconds either added to their race time or serve it at pitstops and if your driving for Red Bull/Ferrari/Mercedes the worst that usually happens is you still get 8 points for 6th. I’d like to see the old penalties back and really make them work for it
