The problem with letting some of the cars through and not others is that it did not treat all drivers on the grid equally. Sainz could have had a shot at the win, all those lapped cars not allowed through were denied a shot at moving up.

Then there's this quote "There's a requirement in the sporting regulations to wave all the lapped cars past"

I think both drivers had their share of leniency from the stewards this year and on the whole it balanced out, right up until Latifi crashed... Only one driver benefited from the subsequent decisions
