Change through continuity
Double points may be gone, but the potential problem of the same driver winning successive championships because they have ‘the best car’ has yet to be addressed.
If Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton have found the right formula and enjoy a period of success similar to that of Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel, then the tinkering with the rules will begin again very soon.
It’s an idea that has yet to be tried, but instead of changing the rules, why not give each team the same engine? The manufacturers could take it in turns to supply the engines and the teams would be left to design their own cars. All fans of the sport would love to see a level playing eld and many more drivers would be given the chance to prove their skill. Peter J B Green
