Clearly, Ferrari believed it was worth the risk, but they were proven wrong. I'm a bit curious about why they didn't bother to give it a simple open/close test in the pit, although that might not have been an adequate test with the wing not under aerodynamic pressure. In hindsight it appears that he would have easily finished 5th without the extra stop and quite possibly even higher. Minimum loss of 6 points due to the extra stop.
