I do agree with the penalty as he clearly went off track, but as said by others it needs to be enforced more consistently - anywhere, anytime, by anybody.

On top of the 4th place finish, Chris Harris tweeted that Max also got a penalty point on his license for it, which is completely stupid and unwarranted.
The bigger mistake Max made was that on Dutch TV, he called the race steward a person with down syndrome (Dutch: 'mongool').
He has apologized for this.
