Yes, I get all that, all very valid points. But don't you think teams will and do exploit that? You're right, it is harder to judge fuel usage over a distance like that, but they'd be able to manage it fairly easily over the last few laps. I don't really care that much about it, just offering a different opinion (and bringing the topic to the thread) and opening a debate on consistency in the rules. Going off on another tangent, Button really needs to get his act together. I don't think the continuing McLaren strategy fails are helping him, but he's clearly got other issues at the moment and is struggling to drive through issues as many others seem to do.
