A Pole Trophy - Wow what'll they think of next.
Oh and the penalty points thingammy starts as well.
Now can you win a pole trophy if you've been banned in the year? - We really need to know this kind of stuff is they expect us to put up with laughable regs changes on double points etc.
As of the 2014 campaign, the FIA will award a trophy for the driver who qualifies on the front row of the grid the most times during the season. Should two drivers be tied at the end of the year then the award will go to the person with the most second places.
If a countback fails to separate the two drivers then "the FIA will nominate the winner according to such criteria as it thinks fit".
Motorsport's governing body added the new feature to its sporting regulations, which was posted on the website.
The penalty-points system also comes into effect next year and drivers will receive a race ban if they get to 12 points during the season.
"Penalty points will remain on a driver's Super Licence for a period of 12 months after which they will be respectively removed on the 12-month anniversary of their imposition," the FIA said.

No surprises here. A solid choice for Sauber, but I'm not sure how much money (if any) Adrian brings to the table, so a pay driver will be a must for the second seat.

The FIA has opened the bidding process for possible new teams. It's the same old platitudes being put forward about budget capping to try to entice potential candidates on board, but we all know what happened about that the last time.
I can't see anyone being interested in taking up this offer. The independents cannot compete and the manufacturers aren't interested in anything other than their bank balance. On that basis, who on earth is going to apply?
