another totally arbitrary points system, with no basis in mathematics, that does not give enough empphasis on WINNING! What F1 is all about.
What's wrong with it? It was proposed by FIA, not FOTA.

The only drawback to me is these new points will affect the career points tallies.

What??? The only podium position made slightly more appealing is 3rd place, or don't you read your fellow forumers?
