321Go should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I'm expecting some more fine tuning to the points system for the last race of 2015. A bonus point system will to come into effect. To be awarded at the final race in Abu Dhabi.

Bonus points awarded will be:

4 WDC points for most poles during the year.
2 WDC points for most fastest laps of the race.
3 WDC points for leading the most laps during the season.
5 WCC for the fastest pit stop during season.
6 WCC points for the team that uses the least amount of fuel during the year, and finish all races.
10 WCC points for each team that has had both cars classified finish at all races.

Now that should spice things up a bit more.

Don't forget to book your flights and accommodation for Abu Dhabi folks, Bernie wants you to attend and boost the attendance from the usual 100 or so people in the grand stands.

Double points for the last race was agreed to by the teams as a good idea, but a mandatory two stops per race is not?? Cannot believe they rejected that over the double points for last race!!

I really liked the "medals" system proposed a few years back, i've always thought collecting wins was more important than collecting numbers, but a traditional points system staying in place i totally understood.

50 points up for grabs at the final race of the year, particularly if its a year where nobody makes a Vettel-style 2013 break, could potentially lead to someone 'there or thereabouts' all year winding up Champion if its a whacky final round...and in my opinion (which probably doesn't count for anything) somebody 'there or thereabouts' in a championship year doesn't deserve to win any championship, letalone the World Drivers Championship.

I think it's perfectly befitting for a championship that is trying to tap into a market that is seemingly only interested in vacuous bullcarp.

In my opinion this new rule and also the proposed rule for the minimum number of tire changes sounds like an act of desperation. The FIA wants to do something to reign in the current incumbent champions and also to make the "show" better, specially towards the end of year. This does sound gimmicky of course. Why should the last race be worth more points? It's just a race. If they make it worth more points, at least it should be special in some way. E.g. make the race last three hours instead of just two.

I can see the F1 final race being developed and marketed as some sort of F1 Finals type event which would justify F1 charging a bigger fee to the hosting circuit. Can see the F1 Finals being offered to the highest bidder in future years. Don't particularly like the idea as I think all rounds should have equal points, but I get the aim.

I like the driver numbers idea. Allows drivers to have easily identifiable brands that they, rather than the team owns, built around their own number, thus allowing them to develop an income stream separate from the team and team sponsors. Will benefit those drivers who dont get a reliable team salary. I always hated the F1 numbering system, particularly the part where they skip #13.

5 second penalties - how's that going to work? Anything that means that the final result is different to the order in which the cars crossed the finish line is a bad idea.

Considering the FIA think that the races are long enough and put a time limit on them, I doubt they'd ever increase the race distance

More points is like printing more money, it just devalues the currency. I've been following F1 for 35 years, I feel like I've been robbed, I was really looking forward to the new engine rules, now I doubt if I'll watch, I can't remember missing a GP for 20 odd years. MW @ Porsche is a much more exciting prospect.

Here's a good synopsis and implications of the rule changes for 2014 from Edd Straw.

The F1 teams don't want the 2 pit stop rule. I don't blame them for that.

Can you tell me why a race witnessed by a trackside audience of dozens should award double over a packed Silverstone or Monza?
Can you ask the teams and the FIA those questions?

I certainly wouldn't have come up with that suggestion myself, but the teams and the FIA must have their reasons for it, although they are a bit thick.

It can only be something given to Abu Dhabi because they were put last on the calendar and didn't want to be.

Outside of that context it makes no sense whatsoever.

And personally I'd have preferred team numbers (Williams 5,6, ferrari 27,28) rather than driver numbers. But it's a nothing issue to me.

Well, it will please those who don't want a minimum number of pit stops i.e. one pit stop, but will perhaps not please those who think that Pirelli should supply tyres that only degrade after about 35 laps or more.

Personally, I hope that Pirelli go ultra-conservative, so that only one stop, at any race, is necessary and only because it's a current tyre regulation that says you have to.

Maybe they will also reject the double-points suggestion?
