FIA suggests new points system

Formula 1 governing body has suggested that the top ten finishers should be awarded World Championship points as the field increases in size next season.
With 13 teams entered for next season FIA suggests that the scoring system should be as follows:
1st - 25
2nd - 20
3rd - 15
4th - 10
5th - 8
6th - 6
7th - 5
8th - 3
9th - 2
10th - 1

This is just as bad as the existing system which does not reward race victories...

Under current system: 4 wins and 1 DNF = 40 points;
5 2nd place finishes = 40 points

Under proposed system:
4 wins and 1 DNF= 100 points;
5 2nd place finishes= 100 points

Both these systems suck, they reward concistency over race wins and promote caution over aggression and fighting for wins

A good system would be:
1st = 30
2nd= 20
3rd = 15
4th = 12
5th = 10
6th= 8
7th = 6
8th = 4
9th = 2
10th = 1

+ 1 point bonus for pole and 1 point bonus for fastest lap of the race

Isn't this counter-producting of FOM trying to excite the races???
More points among the field just promotes more caucious race and drivers will settle in mid-pack for "a few points".

I still prefer the current system or even the older "10-6-4-3-2-1" system...

10*2.5= 25 Now 25
8*2.5= 20 Now 20
6*2.5= 15 Now 15
5*2.5= 12.5 Now 10
4*2.5= 10 Now 8
3*2.5= 7.5 Now 6
2*2.5= 5 Now 5
1*2.5= 2.5 Now 3

So basically what they have done is multiply everything by 2.5
except that now 4 through 6th places earn relatively less points than before, 7th place is the same while 8th place earns more than before and 9th and 10th are rewarded.

At least podiums are more valuable than before now compared to 4th to 6th places even though they did not go the extra mile to make wins more valuable...

Either what I proposed in the previous post or even keep this new systen but make a win 30 points

Hamilton 238
Massa 237

Amazingly, Massa would have still lost the championship by 1 point last year under the new point system !!!!

P.S I am drunk, can someone please verify my math ?

It looks like they are changing this one more time... Second place now is only 18 points to further reward race wins... Very good decision. Not sure if FIA has approved this yet

The SWG has decided that race winners should gain a greater margin over their rivals for their efforts, resulting in first place scoring 25 points, second 18 and third 15.


The remain points will have fourth bag 12, fifth 10, sixth 8, seventh 6, eighth 4, ninth 2 and tenth 1.


The changes, though, still need to be approved by the F1 Commission and the World Motor Sport Council.

Another proposal to change F1 scoring system

Teams have agreed to make another change to the scoring system ahead of the new season. With the top ten finishers picking up World Championship points this year. The latest version of the scheme would reward race winners by a 7-point gap between first and second place. It is a proposal and it has to be ratified by the F1 commission.

The new system would see drivers scoring as follows:
Winner 25
Second 18
Third 15
Fourth 12
Fifth 10
Sixth 8
Seventh 6
Eighth 4
Ninth 2
Tenth 1

FIA set to approve further points and tyre rule changes

From Formula 1.com

Quote:
The Formula One Commission, comprised of the sportís major stakeholders, has agreed a number of proposals for last-minute revisions to the 2010 regulations. Among them are further changes to the points system and to the tyre rules. The proposals will be put to the FIA World Motor Sport Council for approval later this week.

The points system has already been altered for 2010 so that the top ten, rather than the top eight finishers score at each Grand Prix. This is due to the expansion of the grid to 13 teams. Now the allocation of points is set to be changed to encourage drivers to race to win, according to the following scale.

1st: 25 points (previously 25)
2nd: 18 points (previously 20)
3rd: 15 points (previously 15)
4th: 12 points (previously 10)
5th: 10 points (previously 8)
6th: 8 points (previously 6)
7th: 6 points (previously 5)
8th: 4 points (previously 3)
9th: 2 points (previously 2)
10th: 1 point (previously 1)

The most interesting proposed change to the tyre rules is that drivers participating in the Q3 qualifying session must start the race on the same set of tyres with which they set their grid time. This will introduce the strategy dilemma of whether to qualify on a softer tyre which is quicker, but which may not serve the driver so well on a full fuel load at the start of the race.

In addition, to encourage teams to run more during Friday practice, the Commission has proposed that one set of tyres has to be returned before the start of the second practice session, and two sets before the start of the third session.

Further measures for 2010 are also being examined, as well as ways to introduce new environmental technologies to the world championship. Looking ahead to 2011, the Commission agreed that the use of double diffusers should be halted.
http://www.formula1.com/news/headlin...0/2/10389.html

Also, I've heard that FIA will definately ban DDD for 2010.

Quote:
Formula One will have a new points-system this season, granting a great reward to race winners, while the FIA has already ruled that as of next season the double-decker diffuser will be illegal.


The Formula One Commission met on Monday to discuss various aspects that would have an impact on this year's Championship, one of which is the points allocations.


It was decided that 'in order to further encourage the 'race to win', an adjustment to the points system' would be made.


Race winners will now receive 25 points with runners-up bagging just 18. Further points will be handed out in a descending order of 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1.


Teams have also had the number of dry weather tyres allocated reduced from 14 to 11, while 'cars having participated in Q3 must start the race on the same set of tyres with which their grid time was set.'


As for the double-decker diffuser, the device raised a great deal of controversy last season when it was first introduced, resulting in protests from the teams who missed the mark.


And although there is already some debate over whether teams will protest one anothers diffuser this season, there won't be next year as the Commission agreed to 'exclude' the 'double' decker.
