I think you got the penalty in the video because the left wheel is not 100% on the road on the first corner when you turn right (00:04). And also the front right (no argue about it. That is completly obvious) and the probably back right wheel. Meaning that you probably put 3 wheels off road.
Can you post the same video but with the back cam to check if the back right whell is also off track or not? I think if you prove that you only had 2 wheels off track the penalty was unfair. But "it is up to the stewards' discretion"....

Here are the rules:

1.3 Track limits:

1.3.1
● Stay within the track boundaries with at least two tyres at all times. The track boundaries are defined by the white lines, NOT by the edge of the kerbs. The white lines are deemed part of the track, however the kerbs are not. Cutting corners, or extending the track, to gain an advantage is not allowed. Drivers found to be persistently breaking this rule will be penalised retrospectively. It is up to the stewards' discretion (based on the evidence provided) to determine whether a driver has abused the track limits to an extent where a penalty is justified.

Apologies for the huge delay here, this got lost due to some miscommunication on our end.

The stewards agree that this penalty was overly harsh, and will be reducing it to a warning. This will result in the total penalties amounting to 3 seconds rather than 10 seconds.
