Why was Spa and Russia a luck? In Spa, Max put the car on pole and lead the race under whatever conditions available. In Russia, the team made an inspired call to pit him at the right time. Rain is a factor in races and it's a skill to put the car on pole and pit at the right time. That is not luck.
Even you cannot possibly defend handing out points for the Spa farce. At no point are points awarded for putting the car on pole (save for the sprint races, but this was no sprint race). He didn’t lead the race, because there was no race. They were driving behind a safety car with no allowance to even try an overtake. If you defend that, you seriously have no interest in sporting fairness whatsoever.
What exact sporting fairness you are talking about? The fair decision in Silverstone was to dismiss Lewis for taking his rival out, not a useless 10 second penalty. It wasn't fair to penalize Max and Checo when they lost their engines for no fault of their owns. We can go on and on about these things.
OK, so one final time about Silverstone, that everyone loves to use as a defence for everything.
1. It’s not comparable to Spa to begin with, since it was an actual racing situation
2. Lewis went for a LEGITIMATE move (almost fully alongside into the corner)
3. They touch, which sometimes happens in racing
4. The blame is put PREDOMINANTLY on Lewis, since he --- up the most
5. Max had a share of the blame, since Lewis was not wholly to blame acc to point 4
6. Lewis got a 10 second penalty since the actual offence did not warrant more (we don’t penalize based on consequences)
7. Lewis served the penalty, came back and won the race
Now with that RACING SITUATION out of the way, let’s go back to the non-race where points were handed out freely at Spa, that in the end decided the championship. How is that fair according to any sporting regulations?
