I think i misspoke. It doesn't even have to a "direct rival". It should be any other car.
No no, I understood you, just added some thoughts of mine

Typically, you don't get a penalty if it's a racing incident. That leads to another pet peeve of mine with regs, too much interpretation in them. Which is why if the Stewards rule "at fault" the 60 seconds gets tacked on automatically with a dnf.
Ok, but what if DNF happens 15-20 laps later on a failure of part completely unrelated to the incident? Or other way, what if DNF happens 15-20 laps later on a slow failure of a part related to incident, but could have arguably failed on its own? It's tricky
FIA should simply implement rules and penalties consistently as they are written. This is simply against the interests of FOM, as controversy attracts audience and audience brings cash, so they work together and seemingly try to balance things out with equal amount of controversial decisions over a season. I say try, because they fail miserably at it.
