Scoring for next year
Hi, would just like to hear your thoughts on changing the scoring system for next year.
It seems that the current scoring system favours a top engine and top car combination with the drivers taking a back seat.
Personally i believe that this should be reversed, Formula 1 to me is more about the drivers skill than the technology, and i feel this should be represented with the scoring.
If you take the Current leader in F1 for an example:
Lewis Hamilton: Price 37, score 607
For the same price for the car would give you 843 points, couple of million more can get you Red Bull with 1020 or McLaren with 1026, score difference between 235 to 419 extra.
Do the same with the engine (two closest to 37 million), 40 million spent would get you 1347 points with Mercedes or 971 points with Ferrari, score difference between 364 and 740 extra.
Drivers points on position should be increased and the car and engine points should be decreased, bonuses for fastest lap and both cars finishing should be keep, maybe add a bonus for all engines to finish the race, or even penalties for each engine that doesn't finish.
Would like to hear any thought on the above as i do believe the current system takes some fun out of the game, and it just becomes a case of picking car/engine..
P.S. Cracking job your doing with the fantasy league by the way.
