Just charge the drivers for the bits they break.
Sadly the bulk of them have been proven to be the latter already, and with nary a speck of water on the track.
Track position is so important that I think it's unlikely, with the possible exception if there is a huge 30 second gap between 6th and 7th for example so they have nothing to lose pitting again and trying something different.
I mean, you could just make it two tier with the tiers being... those who can start without hitting people and those who can't.GPR -A wrote: ↑Tue Oct 23, 2018 3:30 pmLooking at how clumsy the midfield drivers have been, it would be a good idea to have two tiered start. One for the top 6, which is normal and one for the mid-field with SC! That way, at least there would be some sanity and teams can save a lot of money that their drivers throw away and also cost with penalties.
This is something I still don´t understand. If both cars have, lets say it, a healthy amount of downforce, why have they problems to be competitive?. I remember that RB has been traditionally competitive in we because of the great downforce they have.
Top drivers have contact also helps.
If Vettel doesn´t make mistakes he could win all the races if the Ferrari performs like in USA or SPA. I see particularly difficult the other option though. Hamilton has been impressively constant since many races.Phil wrote: ↑Thu Oct 25, 2018 9:15 amYou are aware that Vettel must win in order to delay the celebrations, right? Forget the 7th place Hamilton needs. Vettel needs to win. Not only this race, but every race. He fails to do this just once, Hamilton is champion.
Of course if Hamilton does get that 7th place, he takes it even if Vettel wins.
To put this into perspective; even if Hamilton suffers 3 DNFs starting Mexico, Vettel must win all races to still take the championship. I dont know which is more unlikely. Hamilton finishing below 7th at any race or Vettel winning all of the remaining races...
