    WATCH: Jolyon Palmer's Analysis – Was Alonso right in demanding Raikkonen's place back?

    On Sunday we saw two veterans, Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen, turn back the clock with spirited on-track battles. The Alpine driver was left irate, questioning track limits rules, but was he right to? Jolyon Palmer looks at the incidents...

    The first scrap was on Lap 16, Alonso and Raikkonen coming together at the edge of Turn 1. Palmer looks at the duel and notes just how quickly Alonso gets on the radio at Turn 2, having pushed his rival wide, and examines whether the Spaniard's resultant complaint for Raikkonen to return the position was justified.

    It didn't end there for Alonso and the Alfas, Alpine's Sporting Director Alan Permane having buzzed FIA Race Director Michael Masi over the radio for clarification before Alonso and Antonio Giovinazzi had their own duels later in the race.

    Palmer's Analysis takes him back to Bahrain and Monza as he examines the tough topic of track limits and the why, where and when of their enforcement. Watch it in the player above.
