FIA Sneak Winner Takes All Rule Through For 2010
When the FIA brought out the official rule book for 2010, the headline grabbers were the budget caps, the theory from teams it would create a two tier series and the ban on refuelling during the race.
But many of us have missed one of the biggest rule changes, one which the FIA conveniently decided NOT to highlight in the packs.
The FIA have revived the idea that whoever wins the most races wins the title. Irrespective of overall points. “Article 6 states that the drivers’ title ‘will be awarded to the driver who has been classified first in the greatest number of races”
Another thing that lacked discussion until now was what will happen with Q3, where the cars used to have to pick a strategy for the race and run with race fuel. The FIA confirmed it will be a low-fuel dash for pole system.
Talk about underhand from the FIA though…
