This accident was so stupid. All of them weren't even on a lap that counted, since they didn't get over the line early enough.
What about the 3 crashes?
And I agree if that was it. But if you add enough wins to those, from a certain point, it does get within margins, and to me, adding 11 more race wins out of a possible 11, suffice. So you'd get:only last victory was a decent result for a title fight. 5 zeros and 2 poor results in 8 GPs is not withing margins IMO
Yes. Any scoring system wich allows to crash 1 race each 4 (not Marc case but could be) and still fight for the title makes the championship uninteresting. IMO reliability should always be at least a little part of the equation to win a title. There has always been a difference between drivers/riders who can fight for victories, and those who can fight for titles and I think it should always be like that.drc wrote: ↑Sat Jun 26, 2021 9:12 pmAnd I agree if that was it.

marc : 12*1st///1*7th///1*9th///3 crashes and 2 no shows
francesco: 13*2nd///1*3rd///4th 5th 6th 7th 1*each///1 crash
IMO, the scoring system should declare marc the winner and, if I'm correct, according to you the winner should be bagnaia. The scoring system in place would translate these results into 316-319 points in favour of BAG, so I guess the scoring system agrees with you and disagrees with me.

Uninteresting? And why would that be? Unexpected view I must say.
But this seems to be contradicting with:Not scoring any point in a quarter of the GPs should discard anyone from the fight. From a fan of Marc
Or are you actually more conservative than the scoring system?in the real world Marc will still have a real chance despite not scoring points in 5 GPs
Yes, but I'd argue it plays more than just a little part in the equation of the points system, and possibly even bigger in your 'ideal' system.IMO reliability should always be at least a little part of the equation to win a title.
What do you mean by this? 5 wins + 1 DNF = 125 points = 1 win + 5*2nd, no?Victories are valued much higher than you imply with your complains. Even if maths look ugly
Why? Not scoring any point in a quarter of teh GPs should discard anyone from the fight, but if points are spread between lots of riders, then he still has a chance. What is contradictory?
The system is FAR from conservative mate
I was assuming this was a serious discussion. Stop the BS please
I don´t have any ideal system, the one suggesting a suposedly better system is you
Exactly, even with 1 DNF each 6 GPs that invented rider will still win the title thanks to the higher number of victories. What´s what you don´t like exactly about this?
