I know it just seems crazy seeing as the ten seconds did not cost him a spot.
Guessing the stewards are trying to send a message to the other teams for the future.

20 or so years ago, the Hamilton - Rosberg incident would have been no big deal. Senna vs Prost, Senna vs Schumacher, Schumacher vs Hill, drivers used to take each other out to win championship deciding races

Indeed, and even before the "incident" the NBC commentators pointed out it would better for Nico if they both had a DNF. On paper they were right, but they were joking about it more than thinking it happen. Then there was the collision.

I remember the Senna-Prost fiasco like it was yesterday. It will be modern F1 racings most unforgettable incidents.

I hope Toto lets them race. I don't want team orders for the rest of the season. Hopefully with the brake failure being a prominent issue he will let them race.

A long time ago before going high tech and becoming secretive and proprietary (and justly so), there used to be a short lived annual no championship (no points) race of, where drivers actually swapped cars. Impossible to imagine nowadays after team xyz invested 100 mio or so in new tech.
It was interesting to see who was really fast (or not) in a competitors car.
I seem to recall one in Kyalami?
