    The 9 6 4 3 2 1 format (used between 1962 and 1990) is my personal favorite.

    However I would like to see different point systems used for drivers and constructors. Like top 6 (more spread) for drivers and top 10 (1-point steps) for constructors.

    I'd like to see teams no longer be employers of drivers. Of course autonomous racing would be cool too, but I meant to have FIA be the sole employer for all drivers... and during every race, lottery system decides a random driver drives for which ever random team. Drivers cannot ever be picked for the same team again unless he has cycled thru all the teams.

    Drivers who consistently failed to score any points after 2 or 3 seasons should just retire... so that young champions of lower feeder series could have a chance. Drivers will receive a base salary with additional bonuses based on points scored.

    Such system should prevent paid drivers from entering F-1?

    Also we'd have less arguments about which driver is the GOAT!

    Championship winning teams could also brag about they are the best doesn't matter who drives our cars...

    Anyway, dream on.

    One thing I like about the current system with points for the top ten is that most years, even the worst team gets to score at least one point. Which means that, lined up on the grid, every single driver has a small but realistic possibility of scoring a point - quite often nobody is in a car that's so uncompetitive that they won't get at least one chance of a point.

    Points for second place have varied between 60% and 80% of the points for a win over time, so the current 72% is fairly 'normal'. I think too big of a gap and a run of form can lead to one driver wrapping the championship up early, leaving a lot of dead rubbers. Too small of a gap and you could get a champion who has won few or even no races.

    I'm not that keen on Drivers' and Constructors' points being different because it would misalign incentives between driver and their team; if Drivers points go down to 6th and Constructors to 10th, then a driver in 7th place might want to make a risky pass for 6th, but their team would want them to bank the (constructors) points. It's also more complicated to follow.

    If we didn't have pay to race drivers, you wouldn't have had Nikki Lauda.

    FIA should offer financial aid/scholarships for talented young drivers in lower feeder series… and if you win championships, you get to move up. If you never score any points, you get washed out and your seat given to future possible rising stars!

    I’m sure young Lauda would still be able to excel in such environment without having to borrow money against his life insurance in order to secure a ride.

    Red Bull Ring gets another round because Britons can't travel to Turkey to where they were supposed to go because Canadian GP was canceled.

    Nice!

    But I wonder what’s up with all the background stripes? Any hidden meaning or just visual effects?

    There were some images of the car with hipster-y fauxcandescent lighting instead of the background in blue/orange stripes. Not hosted in McLaren's web page, sadly.

    We have come a along way from only being allowed to run one livery for a whole season
