    2014 F1

    Double points for the last race of the season??

    Perhaps would help to avoid a season winner prior to the last race, but what else would make the last race of the season worth twice the points of any other race in the season  Smiley  Smiley


    Re: 2014 F1

    I believe that's the reason. The last race is such a buzz kill when it doesn't matter at all, making it worth double could give the runner up a fighting chance in an otherwise locked in season. 


    Re: 2014 F1

    I think it's good to spice things up. I would give a sliding scale of points to all race finishers, not just the top 10. Plus bonus points for pole position.

    Re: 2014 F1

    I would 100% agree on Quali-points to be added - but double for the last race ? Imagine Vetter leads with 49 points and gets "kicked-out" and runner up wins ? what a joke ! terrible...(not even considering that some people suits AbuDhabi more than others - hence get a "double double advantage. Very sad.

    Quali points would have been very fair - for those throwing everything into that in order to make at least some points.


    Re: 2014 F1

    The problem I see is that its Abu Dhabi the GP that counts double, really? that is a pathetic tract with practically no exitement or technical difficulty. If they do this then a track like Spa or Monaco should be the last one of the season... one of those deserves to count double.

    BTW, if this new rule would of been present in past seasons, Massa would have been champion in 2008, and Hamilton would not have any championship title, Kimi would have won in 2003 and Shummacher would only have 6 titles, and Alonso would have won in 2012 instead of Vettel. Makes chanmpionship titles seem so arbitrary in that you change a little rule and all of a sudden championship trophies change hands so easiy...

    very true !


    Re: 2014 F1

    Last race of the season needs to be somewhere with good enough weather in November. I would prefer Austin but a lot of end of season deals (with sponsors and for driver seats) are done in Abu Dhabi so the Team Principals prefer it.

    Great Idea - make it retroactive back 15 years and tumble up the standings and record books a bit!  Especially since Massa was robbed in Brazil!

    +++ points for qualifying are a must!

    Quali points added??,,, triple points for the last race still would not be enough for another driver to catch the Vettel. Imagine Vettels lead if they bunged pole position points to him, he could take the last 3 races off.

    haha.... like that Suzy! :) kiss

    btw... last race double points is so rubbish.... why having a competition and rating such a race like Abu Dhabi double - this is insane. A driver can lead with 48 points and the last race his car cracks or someone crashes into it and the second becomes first... stupid rule!


    Re: 2014 F1

    I can see it now, someone accident prone like Maldonado taking out Vettel in a crash in the last race, and the Championship goes to.......angry
