    Re: New points system confirmed

    Anyone yet calculated the changes in driver position, if any, had this system been in place for previous seasons?

    Re: New points system confirmed

     Such timid little changes in a sport that desperately needs drastic ones. Shouldn't be surprised I suppose - I guess this is the "new" order under President Todt.

    On an unrelated note, speculation is beginning to ramp up that the Schumi/Merc deal is done and awaiting final med clearances and a signature. May be announced later this week...


    Re: New points system confirmed

    I prefer this system, closer to the one in motoGp, it will force temas/drivers to place winning the race at their upmost priority and not playing it more conservative (and boring) by just raking up consistent 2nds and 3rds to win the tittle, with this system you still have to be consistent but also win a good percentage of the races.

    Re: New points system confirmed

    A summary of the different points systems used in F1

    • 1950-1959: 8-6-4-3-2 and 1 for a fastest lap
    •   1960: 8-6-4-3-2-1
    •   1961-1990: 9-6-4-3-2-1
    • 1991-2002: 10-6-4-3-2-1
    • 2003-2009: 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1

    Also in several seasons the "dropped scores" system was employed to complicate matters further.

    Using the "what if" scenarios would have produced different champions on many occasions. But IMO such comparisons are not valid because as Niki Lauda once said "give me a points system and I will race accordingly"

    Re: New points system confirmed

    I agree wholeheartedly, MotoGP is, and has for the past few years despite Rossi's dominance, been a much more exciting series championship-wise. But if we're interested in all-out victory chasing, then why not give P1 a disproportionately high point score (i.e. more so than now). Supplement that with a point for pole and one for fast lap, or something to that effect, maybe even one for most laps led, to allow the perennial P2 finisher an actual mathematical chance. Then I think we'd see some urgency and perhaps some good old-fashioned "low-percentage" overtaking.

     yup, but with more teams we would otherwise have had a lot of zeros... i think maybe this is good because it makes the middle/end drivers more competitive. brings the field together!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)
