Nick’s post about the teams expectations reminded me of an idea that I’d had for a while which is to run another championship right here on sofaf1. The idea is based exactly on what Nick observed which is that not all of the teams want or rather expect the same things. I think that at the end of the season a team that has moved forward three places in the points order at the back of the grid might be a more impressive thing than a front runner moving back a few places. And yet that front runner does better in the championship. So I wanted one where basically the most impressive team would win.
I’m thinking the maths for this might be quite complicated. But I’ll work it all out. Some factors that will be in there. Reliability, achievement of their season objectives, improvement over last years performance, achievement of our own objectives and so on.
Any other factors you think I should include?
