F1 becomes a cup tie

It strikes me as odd to change Formula One from something that means the most consistently good driver ends up as champion to a lottery whereby luck now becomes more important than consistency.

Changing from the F1 champion being the one with the most points to the one with the most wins opens up the possibility of the F1 champion next year only finishing three races, winning them all, and then beating in to second place another driver who finishes all the races, wins two and comes second in all the other races. Fair ? Hardly.

It all seems a little desperate and turns what is a league based on real results over a whole season in to one of chance more akin to a cup tie in football.

You have to admit that F1 has become boring in the last 10 - or even 20 - years.
