Description:
Not sure if anyone is to blame here, but I felt like I didn't do anything wrong so it's frustrating that an incident occured and would like to see the footage from @Jezza as well.

Coming up to the last chicane I had the inside and was slightly ahead of @Jezza. I decided to brake as late as I dared to claim the corner and force him behind me. He broke even later and turned in for the apex, leaving me no room and spinning me out.
I feel like it was impossible for him to brake that late, leave me space on the inside, still make the second part of the chicane and then not crash any of us into the wall of champions and thus think his move was to agressive.

Sorry for the trash quality;
Really sorry @RichyB this one is on me I think, as you can see I realised my mistake as I slightly went for the chicane, I then cut the corner in an attempt to avoid hitting you but by then it was already to late. Sorry again <3.

The stewards have looked over the footage and comments provided and felt that @Jezza was at fault in this incident.
We think @Jezza broke too late and in an attempt to still make the chicane collected @RichyB. In future you're advised to be cautious when racing close with other cars.
We therefore give @Jezza a 5 second time penalty and 5 penalty points for causing a minor avoidable collision.

Closed.
