I think his point is that all the percentage differences are around 85%, yet the number of positions differences keeps growing, so a position difference lower down is less than an equal position difference higher up.
Someone who finishes
1st, 5th, 5th, 5th and 9th
is better than someone who finishes
5th, 5th, 5th, 5th and 5th
because the difference between 1st and 5th is greater than the difference between 5th and 9th, even though they're both four spots apart.
The fact that he changes both era
sample of positions, though, is confusing. If you want to do this scientifically and draw a point you need to isolate the variable that you're changing. Changing them together makes it unclear what's causing the change in results.
