All those exciting races.
Well, I'm glad you did enjoy them, because you'll never, ever, ever see one again under this system.
What will happen is that one driver will be three wins ahead (but perhaps only six points in real terms) with two races to go, and that'll be it. Gone. Done.
Not to mention Schumacher winning the title in 2000 thanks to a blown Mercedes at Indy, instead of the thrilling and fantastic race at Suzuka. How memorable would that have been?
And LOL, imagine how ridiculous would the 2003 season have been with Ralf and Montoya splitting wins and serving the title on a golden plate to Schumacher...
The new point scheme does nothing except make dominances even more rewarding and knock the sense out of everything else.
