Has Austrian GP verdict redefined what is acceptable F1 racing?

Formula 1 faced a penalty decision controversy for the third time in as many grands prix in Austria, but the Max Verstappen/Charles Leclerc incident had a different outcome.

After rulings such as the punishment that cost Sebastian Vettel Canadian GP victory, and Daniel Ricciardo a points-paying finish in France, left F1 drivers raging against over-zealous rule enforcement. It also seemed to be contradiction of the 'let them race' ethos the championship was supposed to be adopting, but Verstappen avoiding a penalty for his move on Leclerc appeared to change the picture once again.

More F1 news:

Edd Straw and Scott Mitchell discuss what that outcome means for the rest of the season and how drivers tackle wheel-to-wheel situations, whether the goalposts have now been moved in a good way and if there are ever circumstances when 'the good of the sport' should factor into penalty deliberations.
