When asked upon his own thoughts, Horner stated as quoted by GPFans, “Again, it comes back to you want consistency overall. What happened in turn four, what happened wherever it was should apply to this race. 

“You can’t just go and pluck something out of the air and say ‘ok that is what we will now apply’ because I think that would make a mockery of the policing of the championship.”

On the other hand Toto Wolff stated, “We had our opinions on Brazil but it is important for this race and for the future to make it clear to the drivers that it is well understood. We have heard comments that it wasn’t well understood and at the end, it is the drivers that need to judge when starting a race what is on and what is not on. 

“I think in that respect, it is important to reiterate that this weekend.”
