Another big gripe is the 'lucky-dog' 'free-lap' rule. No one should get anything free! If you are going to give one driver a free lap give everyone a free lap! If you are one lap down, you are back on the lead lap! if you are 2 down, then you are only one now! if you are 43 laps down, now you are only 42!
This still isn't fair what do the lead-lap cars get? Nothing!
The real solution is freeze the field when the caution comes out, nobody gets anything! If you have a faster car and go down a lap, you can pull ahead on the restart. If a caution comes out while you are still ahead of the leader, you go back to the tail end of the lead lap! Gee, a Fair lap back. Take Care, -John
