  • Martin Brundle Isn'T Happy With F'S Proposed Points Overhaul

Martin Brundle isn't happy with F1's proposed points overhaul

Renowned Formula 1 commentator Martin Brundle has voiced strong opposition to a recent proposal suggesting a significant change in the points distribution system.

The proposal, which gained traction during the Chinese Grand Prix weekend discussions, advocates for awarding points to the top 12 finishers in a race. 

This proposition arises from the dominant performance of the top five teams - Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes, and Aston Martin-often monopolising the top 10 positions on the grid due to their superior machinery.

The current scenario has posed challenges for midfield teams, who frequently struggle to secure points.

In response to this disparity, the proposal aims to inject more competition by extending points allocation beyond the top 10 positions, thereby providing incentive and opportunities for smaller teams to vie for valuable points.

However, Martin Brundle has expressed reservations about this proposed overhaul of the points system. 

Citing concerns over potential repercussions and the integrity of competition.

"Formula One world championship points must be hard won and treasured," he wrote on his X account. "Valued. Not some kind of lucky dip where everyone wins a prize."

Brundle appears to be in the minority, as RB team principal Laurent Mekies, Haas boss Ayao Komatsu, and Ferrari's Frederic Vasseur have all voiced their support for the change.
