New point proceedure to be dropped?

Discussion in 'Formula 1' started by kalniel, Mar 20, 2009.

  1. 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.

    Lol, must be very hard for them to get clear on this with only one week left to go, who needs clear rules anyway :D
     
  3. Ill travel to Max's dungeon or wherever he is now and laugh in his face if this actually happens.

    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!
     
  8. FIA claims "It's Bernie's fault!"

  9. Guess we all can relax for now and start swearing at the end of the year again :D
     
  10. 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.
