Can think of a lot worse rules. At least it won’t mean we’ll see drivers outside the top ten bolting on a fresh set just to get the point

Agree. I think it may be difficult to game this. Best I can come up with is any scenario in which someone in the top ten has a pit stop worth of gap to whoever is behind them. Or a 9th place (2 point position) who is struggling to defend against 10th. Pit for tires (giving up 9th place), come back in 10th (hopefully) and cross your fingers that you can get fastest lap and still get 2 points total. Probably better than loosing 9ths position at the end and getting a single point for 10th.

If there is a way to game this, someone will figure it out!

If nothing else, the "point for fastest lap - as long as you're already in the top ten" being announced so close to the season's first race should get the fantasy championship mathematicians jumping!

Honestly don't know how much difference it'll make but it may well result in greater gaps in points - not sure that extra point available at each GP will assist those trying to make up ground all that much, unless the points totals are very close at the top.

Something else to talk about though - including who actually set the fastest lap compared to who got the point for it (setter of fastest lap my not finish the race or may finish outside top ten).

The tentenths fantasy competition Right here (shameless plug) has had points for fastest Lap for years, regardless of where the driver finished or even if they finished.

They would have driven differently given a different set of rules, so it cannot be said that it would have swung a championship just like that.

You say that, but you race to the rules. If fastest lap doesn't matter then you don't care about it. If there were a point on offer don't you think Hamilton would have made sure he got it?

Hahaha snap! Sorry for the double post there we must have hit send at the same time

I would be surprised if it happens on that day as there are too many vested interests pushing for their own set of regulations to suit themselves. Every time a deadline for a rule change has been announced it has never happened and after that substantially changed when a decision has been announced. The promoters ought to make the rules and if a team does not like it they can voice their opinion and just get on with it. I can't recall in years gone by when major changes were made such as the previous turbo era that anyone raised a fuss and there were some huge changes made in decades past.
