did Sunday in Australia a kind of F1-history. Through 2019, the first race I won the Finnish sign for the first place 25 points, the base of the pot and on top of it one extra point run to the penultimate round of the competition with the fastest lap time. Bottas leads the world cup series now eight points to team mate to his Lewis Hamilton . Bottas 26-18 lead is higher than any other F1 driver's WORLD lead in the season opener races.
Until just before the season the first GP-weekend adopted an additional point system has sparked during the past week the opinions for and against. Part of keeping additional points welcome reform, because, as Australia was seen, it will inspire drivers to compete in the final moment, other than just not run. On the other hand, when you look at, for example, last year the fastest lap times, it is easy to understand that the reform benefits are likely to be just a large garage.
Last season, Mercedes (10), Red Bull (6) and Ferrari (4) took his name, 20 of the 21 race faster lap time. Remaining the fastest lap time took the name Haas Kevin Magnussen , which traded on the Singapore GP:the end of the moment, fresh tires under, when he was already far away from point place. In 2017 the top three in the stable accounted for 18 fastest laps of the 20 possible.”Shame”
Although this season introduced a rule had been in force already a year ago, Magnussenia would not be award winning in Singapore additional points, as he ranked at the time of the 18:th. The highest speed round gets an extra point only, if placed in the competition for points among the top ten.
Just Magnussen, is one of them, for which the reform did not particularly like the taste.
– it Is a pity, that the races shared the extra point, which we will never achieve. It's a little unnecessary, Magnussen told Danish Ekstra Bladet.
teammate Romain Grosjean is of the same opinion.
– It is a point, which shared only the tip of the stables. The middle of the pack in it, it doesn't change anything.divide deepens
Haas-the duo's vision is based on the fact that when the middle of the pack is expected to be this season smoother than years, it is highly unlikely that the tip of the stables behind the competition the drivers would contest the final moment in a situation that they could afford to do an extra 20-30 seconds for a pit stop and get under the fresh, fast tires. Competition for the fastest lap in the making requires middle caste types of fresh tires, as the head of the garage of the car you are in principle clearly their cars faster.
finished in the Middle of the stables have been in recent years in great difficulty the three top stables. For example, last season, Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull took over 78% of all allotments of points. Reading is the biggest in 2010 introduced the points system.
manufacturers of MM-oodi ranked Renault collected last season 297 points less than the MM-three Red Bull. Renault point the pot was only 19% of the manufacturers of the championship winning Mercedes. These readings are in the 2010's the darkest.Haas-the garage, Romain Grosjean (left) and Kevin Magnussen do not like the F1 series point of the reform a success. AOP
