There would also be the case that you would see teams that virtually never get points doing some of the most odd strategies to get fastest lap at the end. This would then have strange results with the team at the bottom at the championship possibly getting all their points this way. I think it makes perfect sense to only allow the top 10 to get this.
But they would be bottom of the championship, (even after supposedly getting all these fastest lap points), so what difference would it make, what would it have gained them?

I say fair play to them if a backmarker would manage to get some points by driving the fastest lap. I doubt however that Williams would be able to do that even if they got fresh softs on the last lap of the race.

I agree. As I wrote on the race thread, Grosjean was handed a ban for less than what Vettel has done over the past 18 months. Also it's clear he shows no remorse and takes no responsibility for his actions, so some level of punishment is needed for him to perhaps actually reflect on what he is doing wrong.

How bad does it look for the sport if a 4 time champion with the 3rd highest win count gets a ban for persistent incompetent/dangerous driving? It must be on the FIA's minds.
He's also on about his third final warning regarding his general conduct anyway.
They ain't gonna ban the guy from a race let's face it, it simply won't happen. They've had plenty of cause to and haven't so he won't be getting any more penalty points if avoidable, if they didn't ban him after Baku 2017 they won't ban him for a accident

Why talk in such absolutes? Of course the will ban him if they have no other choice, which I think you also meant by the "if avoidable" part!

I'm not taking in absolutes, I said if avoidable. As in at this point it's obvious they won't give him penalty points to get him a race ban for regular crashes only if he does something absolutely mental (I mean what is more warranted for a race ban than delibaretly crashing your car into someone, for.which he didn't get banned or black flagged) so it's obvious to.me they're actively going to avoid giving him points now, which is wrong, and I say that because I don't see what other legitmate reason they could possibly have for not giving him a penalty for Brazil.

I also said if avoidable. If they have any way to avoid it they will. He will need to completely take someone out intentionally to get a ban, which I think simply won't happen (I'm sure you agree with that, unless you think vettel would do it)

Sadly, probably true. Baku was worth a race ban all on its own.

Keke Rosberg was the third best driver of the 1980s decade

The top two are obvious, Senna and Prost. After that, people usually pick either Mansell or Piquet. In my opinion, Rosberg was better than both of them.

1. Keke’s 1982 title is often attributed to luck. I think that the FW08 is quite conceivably the worst car to ever win a WDC. In that sense, his championship is quite extraordinary and impressive.

2. Both Mansell and Piquet spent at least 4 years in the outright fastest car on the grid. Piquet had his early Brabham cars, as well as the 86-87 Williams. Mansell drove the same Williams, as well as those from 91-92. Keke never spent a single season in the best car.

3. Rosberg beat Mansell quite convincingly when they were teammates in 1985. He finished ahead on points, and the table flattered Mansell. Rosberg was ahead of Mansell before a racing incident with Senna in Brands Hatch, and he was miles faster than Mansell in South Africa but he slipped on some oil. On pure pace, it wasn’t a contest. Rosberg was a tier above.

I genuinely believe that if peak Rosberg drove the Williams cars that Mansell did (86, 87, 91, 92) he would have won 3 WDC and 40 races.

A bold call, which leads me onto...

Mansell is quite possibly the most overrated F1 driver of all time.

I'm confused. He won races in both 89 and 90 and the Ferrari wasn't a midfield car?

Mansell overrated, hmmm.... Not as good as Prost but as good as Piquet, better than Berger or Patrese. Wouldn't that make where he's rated about right? Usually between 10-20 of all time.

Yeah, I wouldn't call the 1989 Ferrari a midfield car, and the 1990 car was an outright title challenger. He was beaten by his teammate quite soundly in 1990, but it wasn't a midfield car at all.

It's more the size of the gap between him and the best of the era for me. People seem to rate him close behind Prost, whereas I see a pretty huge gap. It seems to be a popular contention that Mansell had the speed of Prost but lacked in other areas, whereas I see Mansell as being basically a complete second tier driver who needed a dominant car to finally win a title. I wouldn't put him anywhere near the top ten all time.

Rosberg won a title with a much worse car than Mansell did, and he beat Mansell when they were teammates in 1985, yet Rosberg is rated nowhere near the top 20.

Does that make Mansell overrated or Rosberg underrated?

Probably a bit of both.

Possibly. I think you also have to remember that when people construct a list of "greatest" success generally plays a part as well as impact on the sport.

Mansell had a lot more of both than Rosberg. Doesn't mean he was actually better though. If you see what I mean.

For some perspectives pertaining to the very debate going on here I would direct everyone to a very interesting thread on the autosport forums: "https://forums.autosport.com/topic/211502-our-nige/". In the later pages of that thread especially, they get into the question of Mansell's relative stature amongst the eighties greats and why it took so long for him to start winning grand prix/attain conspicuous success.

It's the prevailing opinion of some of those posters that like Hakkinen in a way with that win at the end of '97, Mansell needed to be 'fleshed' (to use the hunting term) with the two wins at the end of '85 in order to really come into his own and feel a sense of his own powers. Keke racing against Mansell in an '87 Williams is a whole different proposition to their earlier time together just as it would be for someone racing in the same team with Hakkinen in '98 say instead of in '95. Now you could say with justice that its a demerit for both of them that the fire had to be lit in them circumstantially whereas the rest of their august company had it from the beginning. But I think it's true that they became qualitatively different competitors at a certain stage of their F1 careers than they had been before.

That's a matter of perspective - opinion if you like, but definitely perspective. A few years ago I read or heard that Keke said something along the lines of "I thought I was fast, until I met Alain Prost". To me, that means looking the truth squarely in the eye and living with the consequence.
I hoped at the time that he would go to one of the other top teams and continue his career, but I respect him immensely for putting it that way.

It's as I said then, if he had stayed at Williams he probably would have won 1 or 2 more titles, instead he went to McLaren and the year after he retired.

I think that tag belongs to Gilles Villeneuve. There are similarities between Nige and Gilles in that perhaps certain standout performances have led to them seeming better than their overall performances.

Gilles gets romanticised a fair bit because of his tragic and untimely death, along with his box office driving style. He missed out on the title in one year he had the opportunity to really go for it in 79.
