they're going to do it next season, unless they realised it's a dumb idea.Gordon wrote:Oh. Wackypedia tells me that the "most wins" rule wasn't introduced this year. That sucks...
it's nice in theory... it should mean people chasing wins more keenly.. but it could also mean drivers with no hope of winning dropping off and preserving their engines.. particularly towards the end of the season. i think it would also significantly increase the use of 'team orders' (even though they're against the rules) because 1st place would be disproportionally beneficial.
the last race of least season was incredibly exciting because you had massa going all out for the win that he needed, and lewis plundering around the midfield to try and bag a few points.
they should change the points system to give a bigger bonus for coming first... maybe make it 12 points for first place. there used to be a 4pt gap when only the top six got points.
a guy who gets 8 wins and 9 seconds should beat a guy who gets nine wins and 8 tactical retirements.
