Sainz hits out at Palmer incident penalty

Carlos Sainz has hit out at the 10-second penalty imposed for his confrontation with rival Jolyon Palmer at Sochi.

Even the Spaniard's famous father, rally legend Carlos Sainz snr, called the punishment by the stewards "ridiculous".

"I did not see Palmer on my right," Sainz, 21, told the Spanish broadcaster Movistar.

"I don't know why he was there because there was nowhere to go. In my life I have not seen such a penalty for a manoeuvre such as this," the Toro Rosso driver added.
