What is the record for the most time being lapped that a 6th place driver finishing behind 1st place?

To your second question I think Dutch privateer C. G. de Beaufort comes close to it in Watkins Glen 1963 when he made 6th place with 11 laps missing to the winner, G. Hill.

Points are awarded to any "classified finisher", and there are literally hundreds who did not complete the "prescribed" laps! Do you really want one of us to count all this instances?????

Wasn´t that the Monaco GP in which Guy Ligier arrived 6th?

Lets take Mika at Spain as an example. He was the first driver to complete 64 laps, but not the crucial 65th lap. As it turned out, he classified 9th (as the first driver -1 lap). IF only 5 driver finished on lead lap, then MH would have been 6th and scored a point. Note that he also finished ahead of 7 drivers who were actually still running.
