For the speeding under yellow penalty, there is a FIA rule somewhere that specifies how much the lap time should increase by if there is a yellow flag situation at a corner. Also, the cars are tracked electronically in timing loops, so there is no escape from speeding.
Still very arbitrary, and the stewards do not always make the best decision, as you say.

You don't understand a penalty for speeding through a yellow flag?

I guess you've never been a marshal - a volunteer who will risk his/her life to go ON the race track to clear up an incident or save a life while the race continues.

If the small consideration of slowing down a little to help ensure their lives & safety is asking too much, well...... don't complain if nobody is there to help when you crash.
