I think Alex’s most recent method for distributing points works pretty well.
2 points for pole.
2 points for each race position you get right.
1 point for each race position within 1 place of what you guessed.
Although it does lack the bias toward the front of the grid. Perhaps 3 for first place? Anyway, it’s definitely the best idea. We were trying to over-complicate it I think. Maybe we should also state at the beginning how we think the championship will end and get points for that too? Who is going to administrate it?
