I am wondering if this is good or bad for the sport? click here There are the obvious mathematical queries as to the potential outcome of the championship, ie win 3 races and the title if no one else wins more than 2. Someone could do that for the first 3 races and get injured and not race again when another could come 2nd every race,win 2 and get nothing!
This is not new to F1 it was done in the 1970's & early 80's i think. It's just Bernie stirring the pot a bit & making it more exciting to watch! It will however make a mockery out of the points system & will confuse everyone! Interesting to hear what Murray Walker thinks of it. PLEASE BBC bring back Murray!!!!!!!!!!!!
It makes a bit of mockery of racing, as if drivers were not bothered about winning races before this was dreamed up. It will now matter little what happens to any championship challenger who isn't running in or close to P1, so it could in some ways be counter-productive. The FIA should pay more attention to FOTA, which rightly lobbied for a three point gap between P1 and P2.
