They didn't though. Mercedes accumulated an over 11 second lead by actual racing, then a result was contrived, five cars were made to disappear so they could engineer a result. Horner even admitted to pressuring Masi to let the lapped cars through. Team principals shouldn't be allowed to talk to officials while the race is in progress. I don't care which team it is. Should coaches and managers be able to talk to VR officials when they are making calls in football for hockey games? This is no better than NASCAR where everything is contrived to give a close finish no matter how well a team performed or how much of a lead they got during the rest of the race. This is a billion dollar sport with bush league officiating . It isn't just this race, we have seen it all year. I've been a fan of this sport since the sixties but I'm at the point where I think I might as well be watching the WWE. If Masi isn't gone before next season, I don't think I will be watching.

You could say the same about DRS helping create drama. No one wants to watch precession races. And the FIA ruled in favour of Mercedes earlier in the race.
