Poll: Should Verstappen have been stripped of Mexican GP pole?

Max Verstappen‘s pole position at the Mexican Grand Prix was taken from him after the Red Bull driver failed to slow under yellow flags.

The caution flags were waved after Valtteri Bottas crashed at the final corner of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Q3.

Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton both slowed down and did not improve their lap times, but Verstappen did beat his previous effort, setting a new circuit record in the process.

Asked about the incident after the session, Verstappen openly admitted he did not slow down and was aware that Bottas had gone off the track.

Verstappen was given a three-place grid penalty, with Charles Leclerc inheriting pole.

Does Max deserve the sanction, or should he have kept pole position? Have your say below.
