By telling Jen­son But­ton not to down­shift be­cause of hy­draulic prob­lems after he slowed with a brake pedal that was drop­ping to the floor, Mclaren earned its al­ready-de­layed driver a driv­ethrough penalty. But what Mclaren ac­tu­ally did was find an­other prob­lem with the reg­u­la­tions, for he was told not to down­shift when he was tour­ing in to re­tire, prior to the hy­draulic prob­lem clear­ing and But­ton be­ing in­structed to press on again. “It’s a stupid reg­u­la­tion,” was But­ton’s sum­mary.
