I believe there's a while field of mathematics based on it being the case... http://en.wikipedia....f_large_numbers
On that graph you'll notice that up to roll 400 it is varying, and not equal. We haven't reached 60 GP's yet.
You'll also be aware that rolling a dice is a very simplistic event, which is why they use it. Getting a racing driver across the line in a GP consists of many, many 'rolls of dice', meaning in the early stages when it is not equal (pre-400 in that graph), the inequality can differ even greater.
You'll also be aware that rolling a dice is an event that is unbiased and untouched by skill or weighting. Hamilton may have a bad mechanic, or group of them, causing his car to fail this year more than Buttons. Probability has nothing to do with that.
There are plenty more things I'm sure that back my point up that using rolling of one dice to say that Button and Hamilton are even in luck is complete and utter bollocks, but I can't be arsed thinking of them.
