let's face it - if it was the top 6 Marussia would never score points in F1 :D
if the cars were more prone to failure, perhaps top 6 is better. But right now, nah

Yes, top 6 made a lot of sense back in the day when it wasn't an uncommon occurrence to have half the field DNF - restricting points to the top 6 would have helped avoid the impression of drivers/teams getting points "just for finishing" (though I'm sure that still happened on occasion).

indeed - Nurburgring 99 is an example, where Minardi scored a point, had Badoer running in 4th too before he had a failure (and cried too) that promoted his teammate Gene to get 1 point.
that was just a crazy race :D

They should give everyone points. like 1st gets 21 points and last get 1 point. Also giving points for like pole and leading a lap and such
