What unfair advantage? Everyone has the same opportunity as the guy last on
the lead lap. They can pit as many times as they want, whenever they
want(or could before this rule went into effect, if it did). And they know
the same thing as the guy that got his lap back knows... the worst position
he can be in is last on the lead lap. In fact, they know they'll be at
least one position better than that.
