Kevin Magnussen criticised the stewards’ determination to implement monitor limits at Monza’s Lesmo 2 nook after he didn’t make the lower for Q2 when his quickest lap time was deleted.The Haas driver misplaced two lap instances in Q1 for operating large on the seventh nook on the monitor, which is bordered by a large, flat kerb and a gravel entice. The area between the white line marking the sting of the monitor and the start of the gravel entice is simply large sufficient for drivers to fall foul of monitor limits.

“It’s annoying,” Magnussen stated in response to a query from RaceFans after qualifying. “I really feel prefer it’s very pointless with these monitor restrict issues when you could have a nook [where], on the exit, the monitor restrict may be very naturally outlined, like in flip seven the place I received my lap time deleted.

“There’s that double kerb and on the fringe of that there’s an enormous drop and if you happen to go over that you simply actually lose a whole lot of lap time. So there’s a really pure monitor restrict, which is the way it needs to be.

“However if you happen to go to that edge, then you definately’re inside by a few centimetres after which they delete your lap time, which I simply suppose is foolish and pointless.”

Magnussen sees no level in implementing monitor limits at corners that are bordered by gravel traps.

“In corners which have a really pure monitor restrict that stops you from going over, I believe there’s no motive to police,” he stated. “No one cares if you happen to’re out by just a few centimetres, you’ll be able to’t see that on tv. It appears such as you’re simply going proper on the restrict.

“I agree on corners the place [the run-off is] flat and you’ll exit, then we have to police it. However in these corners you’re very conscious as a result of you understand you’ll be able to go thus far out so that you’re at all times somewhat extra conscious and alert attempting to be inside the monitor.

“Whereas corners which have this pure one, you have a tendency to only type of really feel extra free to push as a result of you’ll be able to really feel within the automobile the place you might be. On white strains and painted monitor, you’ll be able to’t really feel something, right here you’ll be able to really feel once you go onto that double kerb.”
