I was quite surprised that Boardman got to keep his win here, and it certainly took the shine off it being his first victory. That wasn’t the only incident he caused either, his mismanagement of the restart following the safety car resulted in a pile-up behind him.
I believe James Nash had a win taken off him a couple of years ago for causing a crash during a race, so there’s a bit of a lack of consistency there.
I will say though, I don’t think he intended to punt Plato off the circuit, and the camera angles that I’ve seen of the incident make it difficult to judge exactly how hard the impact was.
That said, it doesn’t sit well with me that he was allowed to keep his victory.
