"In many cases concerning RBR this year the FIA rather than punish RBR intent preferred to put a patch on the wording of the rules, with the effect of RBR being allowed to keep the points gained in some of the cases illegally." That's a highly creative interpretation of the facts. The FIA explicitly cleared RBR of any wrongdoing. The FIA did not "put a patch on the wording of the rules". They extensively rewrote them. There are two sets of rules in F1 - the rules as they appear on the printed page and the rules as they exist in Charlie Whiting's head. Every so often Whiting realizes that the two are not entirely identical, so we see these - ahem! - "clarifications" to the printed rules to bring them closer to what is in Whitings mind.
