Grid Penalties

Hi all

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but I haven't found any posts.

What is the situation where say Lewis, gets pole but has a 10 place drop due to engine change?

Do you get points for his pole still? Or does P2 get the pole point?

We've always had the driver that starts the
race on pole is the pole winner.

From the rules page

Predict the following:
Pole position: 2 points (Driver that starts the race from pole.)
Top 8 finishing drivers: 2 points for a driver in the right position.1 point for a driver in the wrong position.
Fastest race lap: 1 point.
Rain: Yes/No: 1 point (Decided by members in the race chat room as F1 officials mucked it a few times in the past.)
Safety Car: Yes/No: 1 point (Will be counted when the actual safety car is deployed during race, a virtual safety car does not count.)
Did Not Finish: 1 point (DNF-numbers of cars not finishing race, again declared in the race chat room.)
democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are
willing to work and give to those who would not."
