Interesting use of language in some of your reports on this race. Dovi finished "top six" and Pirro finished "top five".

Why do you do this. Why can't your headlines say Dovi finished sixth and Pirro fifth?

If you think there's something deeply significant about the top five then there can't be something equally significant about the top six.

Yes I can see the point of talking about podium finishes and finishing in the points, but most of this "top n" talk is pretty pointless. The only other significant "top n" would be a CRT finishing top 12 when all the prototypes finish.
