    FOTA have pointed out a clause in the sporting regulations that mean the new change is invalid: http://www.teamsassociation.org/press-release/2009-03-20/fota-statement

    FIA say it'll come in in 2010 instead now.

    Yes that's great to hear. But they could at least increase the podium points. ?!

    And I liked this comment at the link Rhys gave ::D

    Saw it on the News last night that they have dropped the new points thing.. Was a bad idea to have "who ever wins the most races wins" The Championship could be over halfway through if they did that!

    It surprises me that for all the high tech and strategy involved in F1, the point system(s) seem to have been pulled out of a hat. Economists/game-theorists have been studying this sort of stuff for a while (e.g. http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/faculty/markovich/Soccer042508.pdf).

    You'd think that for all the money the teams have been pouring into the sport, FIA would provide a system backed with sound science, which could help assuring the teams that their efforts would not be wasted.
