FIA revives 'winner takes all' for 2010

FIA revives 'winner takes all' for 2010
Rule change hidden away in the regulations

Under the 2010 rules, Button would be in a more
dominant position than he currently is
The controversial 'winner takes all' scoring system has been rubber stamped for introduction in 2010 by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

The governing body tried to introduce Bernie Ecclestone's favoured system this year, but the late change was vetoed by the Formula One Teams' Association.

We reported in March that the FIA would consult the teams before trying to introduce the system for 2010, but the new sporting regulations for next year already feature the controversial rule.

Article 6 states that the drivers' title 'will be awarded to the driver who has been classified first in the greatest number of races'.


The news has until now slipped the attention of the media because - unlike all other changes to the rules - the amended rule was not highlighted in pink and underlined in copies of the 2010 sporting regulations.

The FIA also confirmed that, accompanying the ban on race refuelling next year, drivers in 'Q3' can refuel under parc ferme conditions prior to the race.

This change ensures the spectacle of low-fuel dashes for pole position, not affected by varying race strategies.

FIA deletes 'winner takes all' from 2010 rules (GMM) Now you see it, now you don't. The controversial 'winner takes all' scoring system has now been erased from the 2010 sporting regulations.
After the recent World Motor Sport Council meeting, the FIA published the rules for next year, and Article 6.1 of the sporting regulations said the drivers title "will be awarded to the driver who has been classified first in the greatest number of races".

The governing body tried to introduce Bernie Ecclestone's favored system this year, but the late change was vetoed by the F1 teams alliance FOTA.

It seems that the Article 6.1 inclusion of 30 April was simply a mistake. The article now explains that the drivers' title "will be awarded to the driver who has scored the highest number of points".
