That's how it should be (even though being a Lewis, Heikki & McMerc fan I LIKE this turn of events I cannot deny that maybe it isn't really the most - for want of a better word - honest thing for the FIA to have sancitioned.) All being said though, I think McMerc do deserve this in one way, as the punishment delt to them, IMHO, was too harsh to start with.
Although, maybe the theory is that technically they aren't last in points, Mclaren drivers scored enough points to be 1st (or 2nd?) but the team was not allowed to use those points in the 2007 WCC. There's a bit of a grey area there which I think has been expolited to allow Mc-Merc to have a half decent pit box.

That said, I still stand by that if somebody in a position of power offers you leaniancy - gratis - then no1 would turn it down would they?
And I agree that even though they would - its not really right is it?

While I don't often agree with your very poor view of Ferrari, him winning in the pits and winning the race was really really cheap.
