Then why do teammates not have comparable results in a lot of instances?

Team orders and exploding engines.

I think so, this is also done in Formula E, and the fans decide who gets the boost, which I find really fun.

Such a silly idea that I wholeheartedly approve of.

There are actually two different types of boosts in the Formula E.

One is the fanboost, in which a handful of drivers that the fans chose get a singular power boost to use during the race. I'm not a big fan of this because it definitely advantages only a handful of drivers that have big fanbases (e.g. Felipe Massa, who iirc has gotten a boost every single race this season), fortunately it's not a slam dunk to win.

There's also hyperboost, or 'Mario Kart' mode that they debuted this year. Where drivers go off the line through a small timing section that gives them an extra and very powerful boost. They have two of those, and they *must* use them up at some point in the race. And this definitely adds a lot of excitement around the end of races and safety car restarts as you'll have various strategies with some drivers choosing to take it and get that advantage, and some letting themselves get overtaken but focussing on using it later on in the race to make a bigger jump when other drivers might need to save power because they were too aggressive early on.

I ought to start watching Formula E. From the clips I've seen, it looks like a lot of fun.

If they played today both Fabian Barthez and David James would be much higher rated than they were.

UFC/MMA is boring as fuck until there is a knockout. It is just several minutes of hugging on the floor.
