Dear all, I wanted to know the forum opinion on the following matter. Let's assume that you are team principal; your driver A is running first, two laps to go and not too much under pressure from second placed driver. Your driver B is X positions behind; he has options to get WDC, driver A doesn't. How many positions should you ask driver A to give away in order to get driver B one place ahead? Obviously driver B has to be 11 or higher, otherwise the move does not make sense.
Obviously, the answer will depend on what his chances of winning WDC are. So let's assume two scenarios:
- it is the last race and that position will give him WDC
- it is the race before last, and that position would allow him to be in contention going into the final race.
I will try to make a poll (I have no idea of how to, so I may fail), but basically the answers are 1 to 10. Also, how would the team's WCC position influence your decision?
