After a fantastic season opener, it seems that tyres will once again be the big thing in most teams agendas. Of course, it has to be most teams, becuase McLaren have to sort out their car.
However, what happens if you apply the old 1990s F1 system? Well, the standings will look like so:
1 Raikkonen 10pts
2 Alonso 6pts
3 Vettel 4pts
4 Massa 3pts
5 Hamilton 2pts
6 Webber 1pt
Of course, this system gives points out in a 10-6-4-3-2-1 basis. However, there is a much more complex system in use in the BTCC, the British Touring Car Championship, that gives points to the top 15 drivers, and a bonus point for pole position, the fastest lap during the race, and for leading a lap in a race (a maximum of 1pt, leading every lap is as good as leading 1 for you). Using this system, totally different to the F1 system, you get standings that look like the following:
Kimi still leads, but changes include Nico Rosberg getting the point for leading 1 in the race, and Adrian Sutil, thanks to his long leading stint, is now equal with Mark Webber, with the points given out in a 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 system.
If there is any feedback from anyone, I'd quite like to hear it. This takes surpirisingly little time to do, offers different perspectives into the championship.
