Personally I think its a brilliant idea!

It shows that Bernie & Max can cast aside a system tried and tested over decades and come up with something better in a heartbeat.

I love the idea so much that I have sent them both a present.

Great idea Wiz but it can't work, they will both be waiting for some one else to come up with the capital to fund the devices and that's after the supply of same has been put out to tender.  :crazy:

You'll have to watch out Scotty, I'm on a yellow card myself, our great and wise leader is a teensy bit sensitive about his top class comic material.  ;)

This is a particularly unimpressive set of regulations. Please could someone refer Max Mosley to the Clark and Champman Cups his predecesor set up in an attempt to establish an equivalency formula?

While there, can they also send them a copy of the 2008 season review DVD and the 2008 Sporting regulations, highlighting the major role two dodgy stewarding decisions in Massa's favour would have had on a championship structured this way?

I just received an e-mail advert from the F1 Store at the official F1 website, Formula1.com. The subject line is "Winning is Everything." I'm sure many of you got the same one.

Quote
The new season is less than two weeks away; a new system to decide the world champion was approved by the FIA yesterday.  The world champion will be the driver who wins the most races in the season.  Winning is everything.

It then goes on, "To celebrate the arrival of the new winning mentality..."

Yeah.    Right.   Whatever. :-[

New update on FIA ruling


Rule BR549 states that Championship will be decided by
most wins unless any driver other than a Ferrari driver
has most wins,then re revert back to the original
points system,unless ;)



remember BR549 Cos?

He's not making that too obvious, eh?  Already backing Massa when the rest of the world has absolutely no clue for this season.  Yeesh, he went and changed the rules for Massa too.

From F1 Live:

Just like one year ago, Bernie Ecclestone is placing his pre-season bet for the drivers' title on Felipe Massa.

Prior to the 2008 season, in which 27-year-old Massa won more races than any other driver and finished one point behind champion Lewis Hamilton, the F1 Chief Executive tipped the Brazilian for the title.

In an interview on Thursday with the Daily Express, Ecclestone said: "Red Bull could be a big surprise with Sebastian Vettel. Put him in a Ferrari and he'd be as quick as anyone they have got.”

"Brawn are going well too, but my money is going on Felipe Massa again. I don't see why he shouldn't get the job done. He was quick last year but Ferrari cost him the title with their mistakes," Ecclestone added.

He also thinks Massa's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, who was off-colour last year after winning the 2007 title, could reclaim his form in 2009.

"If Kimi Raikkonen wins a couple of the first three races, you will see a different Kimi.”

"Lewis Hamilton, who has been a good world champion, is obviously going to be there if the McLaren improves but, if they miss out on the first few races, he has a mountain to climb," said Ecclestone.

Michael Schumacher on Thursday was also assessing the likely 2009 pecking order, having observed the two last tests of the winter at Barcelona and Jerez.

The seven time world champion believes his old team Ferrari will be in the fight, but he said ‘several teams’ also seem likely to challenge, including the new outfit run by his former Ferrari colleague Ross Brawn.

"Besides us there are Renault and Toyota, and BMW and Williams as well - on the other hand, after Barcelona you clearly have to say that Ross' team was outstanding.”

"They were a second (per lap) in front, and if they can take this into the season they are strong as well - even if probably the big teams will cut that advantage away with time. McLaren at the moment looks pretty bad," said Schumacher.

I remember that. I didn't know if you knew where the number came from.

Do you think that we should admit watching Hee Haw in front of all these sophisticated folks? ;)
