It does and it doesn't. It prevents anyone from dominating the series and making it a bit boring to watch after the championship has been settled with third of the season left.
Many series have penalties for good performance. It does make for tighter racing and also gives you one more field to beat your opponent through tactics. You have to count your points, positions and penalties for future. Sometimes it may be better to finish lower than where your pace would get you, just to get advantage on the next race. It's very different from the world of F1, but also very interesting.
