Those Three Points

Everyone is making a huge deal out of the three points which separate Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen. Honestly, IMHO, not that big of a deal. I mean, think about it logically: if Kimi Raikkonen wins a race and gets 10 points and Lewis Hamilton finishes, say, fourth, and gets five points, well, then Kimi Raikkonen will have 45 points and Hamilton, 43. And then if he wins again, well, he would be able to keep ahead of him. Also, keep Massa in mind: when he wins, or finishes second, that is one time when Lewis can't finish second. So ideally, the situation for Canada looks like this:

1) Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa, Robert Kubica, or Heikki Kovalainen can win.
2) Anyone of the drivers above can finish second.
3) Robert Kubica, Heikki Kovalainen, and anybody else but the Ferraris and Lewis are allowed to finish third.
4-9) Lewis Hamilton is allowed to finish in any of these positions, but is encouraged not to.

Simple as that.
