Oh well it will be much beter for the drivers now because evry1 is just going to race for First place that means more overtaking and they need good cars/good driving experience/driving skills:laugh2:

I really hope this doesn't go through.. the people at the back (e.g. force india) are already lacking the motivation to try hard.. this just puts those drivers even further out of the points and removes their motivation.

and controversial penalties for the leading driver would be even more controversial when you go from being first to being removed from the points entirely

I thought the idea behind the current system was to keep the overall standings closer throughout the year. Rather than one driver running away with it (ala Schmacher) keeping the interest going until then end of the year. Has Bernie forgotten this?

It looks like Bernie's been smoking the crack pipe again!

What an awful idea - F1, like any other championship is about consistency, not about the top finishers - if it was all about who came first the most, then the likes of Kubica wouldn't have had a chance in Bernie's personal utopia.

And does he think the drivers aren't trying hard enough or something to overtake? Like "encouraging" overtaking - yeah because the drivers that turn up on race day just try to finish a race, don't they? F1 is the top level of motorsport - the drivers there are not grid fillers, if they had the opportunity they would be overtaking each other constantly - the fact is the car in it's current form doesn't allow this, and for Bernie to start laying the reasons on the drivers is a little far fetched IMO.

Please FIA, laugh in his face and give the proposal back to him in paper airplane form!

he did a lot for F1, but now he is ready for a good memorial home.
Bernie can't understand that Hamilton only raced for fift spot in Brasil. Massa had one victory more, so with the new system Massa whas champion.
But what to do with the victory in Spa, he stoled it, normaly Hamilton should have won the GP
And what to do with the statistics build up from 1950??
* scored points by driver
And agree with Matt 'James' Hunt what to do with the smaller teams???
I think that Toyota is not hapy with the new system, for those drivers is ending in the points a good result.

Mister £ccle$$tone did many good things for F1, but now he is ready for a good memorial home.

He can't understand that Hamilton only raced to be in top five in Brasil.
With the new system Massa whas the champion, with one victory more than Lewis.
BUT, what to do with Massa's victory in Spa, he stoled it, Hamilton was the best in Spa and only he should have the Golden Medal in Spa.

* I also agree with Matt 'James' Hunt, what to do with the smaller teams???
* What to do with statistics build up from 1950 (scored points by driver)
* Toyota drivers are happy with 5 and 6 places, what to do with them???
