@yepega I have to ask, why?
I guarantee if we go down that route we’ll end up with everyone complaining that, instead of drivers trying to overtake their rivals they are be dropping back to get space to try to set the fastest lap. How do we know this? Because it happens all the time in other series where they give points for fastest lap.
There’s scope for all kinds of nonsense with this. If a driver only needs to score one point to clinch the championship he’d be better off ignoring the race, pitting for fresh tyres with three laps to go and setting fastest lap. Is that really what we want to see?
I keep hearing people say “we should have a point for pole and fastest lap” but just a moment’s thought is enough to realise the undesirable consequences it would have.
It’s a terrible idea. Introducing it would be a textbook example of ‘fixing’ something that isn’t broken.
