When Daniil Kvyat's shock promotion to Red Bull's A-team was revealed, tagged onto the bottom of its press release about Sebastian Vettel's departure at the end of the season, the complaints began immediately.
The argument against the 20-year-old Russian landing the seat was that he had scored just eight points compared to team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne's 19 (the Frenchman subsequently added two more for ninth at Suzuka), so surely this is another Red Bull 'injustice'?
It's not as simple as that. A glance at the scoreboard never tells the whole story. Particularly in marginal point-scoring teams, you have to delve deeper.
