Some have lamented that you don't get more points for winning a race. Many have lamented there being too little passing action up front. Here's a proposal that fixes both those things, making for a little more excitement, especially later in the race: If you lap a points position, you get that position's points in addition to your own! So, for example, if MS is in first, and he laps all places up to (but not including) 5th place, then he finishes 1st and 6th and gets both points (10+3=13 points). If someone else is in 7th and then RB has lapped all places up to (but not including) 7th, then he gets 2nd and 8th and gets both points (8+1=9 points). What would this do? First, it would award some extra points for dominating wins. But far more importantly, it would add a lot of excitement to the races as we get to see the great drivers like MS show their passing skill... As it is now, drivers generally just let MS pass when he's lapping them. So, for MS, the race is basically just a solo sprint away from the rest of the cars. Add this, and now, at least from about position 10 forward, the cars will not want to be lapped and lose points... so, it becomes a race. Now, MS might not be willing to be super-aggressive, risking 10 points and a victory to get an extra 1 or 2, but he'll have to stalk waiting for them to make a mistake and take advantage of it. If you get the top 3 or so places wading up to that point, now the leader has to decide to be aggressive to lap drivers based on whether hanging back is allowing 2nd and 3rd to catch up. One minor benefit is that the mathematical elimination point is delayed as the maximum points for a race is technically very high. Practically, its not so... but not impossible... however an 11 or 12 point race is not unreasonable. Net result: lots more meaningful passing... see top drivers' skill more often... more points for big wins... but still about the same in "mathematical elimination"... Too crazy an idea??
