Secondly, the winner of each race should get at least twice as many points as the second place driver. That would result in a more frenzied attempt to actually win, especially by the top three or four drivers.
Next, no driver should get points for finishing below 10th. All drivers who actually finish the race would get a bonus equal to about half the points of 10th.
Also, remove the points for leading a lap. Nothing bores me more in a race that one driver letting another go past so that driver can get a point for leading. The same holds true for a driver who stays out the longest during green flag pit stops in order to get that point.
I believe the bonus for the driver who leads the most laps is fine. Dominant cars and drivers should be rewarded. I would increase the size of that bonus, however.
Finally, award points for winning the pole. I like the drivers who want to go faster than everyone else. Speed is something that creates excitement in the sport.
Doing those things would make sure that all driving champions deserved the honor and would make each week’s racing superior to what it is now.
