Thinking about it, double points at Monaco might stop drivers and teams doing a Rosberg. There would be an extra incentive to go that little bit faster to pass someone holding up the field and making the race […]
Something like in IndyCar, where you have the ‘triple crown’ idea – win the 3 triple crown races and you get a lot of money (just in this case it would be extra points). This would be a better solution than having […]
