Wins to decide F1 champion

From this year the F1 champion will be decided by the number of wins a driver has during the season.

The new system will reward the driver with the most top podiums and points will only be taken into account if two drivers are tied together on the number of wins.

I think it might be a good change especially towards the end of the season as drivers and teams realise that they have to get wins to be in with a chance to win the championship.

Just finishing on the podium will not be good anymore but I still think the problem is in the way in which the points are allocated more than anything else.

By giving points in the 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 way I think a driver can afford to finish second or third and as long as they finish the majority of races they can possibly win the championship.

I still think the old points system of 10-6-4-3-2-1 was far much better because the more races you win you would eventually become a champion because the winner has a four points advantage over second place.

I think they should also have awarded the driver with the fastest lap a bonus point to encourage drivers to get the fastest lap.

It will be interesting to see this new points system in action and we don't have long to wait as the Melbourne Grand prix is just ten days away now.
