@keithcollantine I do like their reasoning: “yes he has broken the rules… but then again, he didn’t gain an advantage… hmmm, so we have to give a punishment, but it should not be that much of a punishment…”
But yes, it’s quite ridiculous. The organizers claim he didn’t gain a competitive advantage, but strictly speaking that isn’t true. The water bottle being handed to him invalidated his weight, so it cannot be stated with certainty that he didn’t gain a competitive advantage by running an underweight car. So the stewards decided to strip his victory, I’d say be consistent with your own reasoning and hand the victory to Wickens. But hey, who am I?
