F1 » Whiting: If a move is wrong, it is wrong

It's astonishing that the FIA see fit to introduce all sorts of gimmicks to make the racing 'better' and then discourage overtaking by making the rules so that a driver actually has reason to fear what moght happen if he has the temerity to try and overtake someone. Why do the FIA see fit to hand out penalties for errors such as Schumacher hitting Senna in Spain, poor judgement but certainly not malicious, and then allow Rosberg to deliberately drive in a manner that forces a rival to drive off the track? And even if you disagree with me, surely someone did something worthy of a penalty, yet as I gather, none was awarded, a point made by numerous others as well.

F1 » Rosberg: I have no idea who’ll be champion

@ Angelina Sorry, I'm afraid I wasn't aware of that, I was under the impression that was a different system, the system where the title goes to the winner of the most races. I thought the medal system was an extension of that idea whereby the championship would work like the olympic medals table. Having said that, I still believe that the most wins for a title would just serve to disadvantage those title contenders in slightly slower cars.

F1 » Rosberg: I have no idea who’ll be champion

If I may, the medals system doen't necessarily encourage the best driver, it means that someone fast but inconsistent can win the title by dint of being in the fastest car, leaving a possibly better driver who was more consistent unrewarded for being better over the whole year. The points system is good as it better punishes drivers for having off days. Under the medal system, a driver could be terrible for the majority of the races and still win the title. As well as this, it would actively discourage racing further down the field, as it would mean there was absolutely no point for a title contender to try and make a pass for any position lower than third. It would be cool if F1 could be added to the olympics as a one off event every four years though!
