Friday Fun - Where would you award points? // Spicing up the points system, rewarding more than just wins

Published by Christine

With the possibility revealed this week that there could be an extra point awarded for qualifying on pole position, we began to wonder what else you could award points for. Nick had a couple of ideas:

If they are giving a point for fastest lap to the driver, then why not one to the team with the fastest pitstop? Although i think the whole thing is very mickey mouse. What next?

Point for the most dramatic gesture on the pit wall? Point for the biggest tyre lock up? Point for the most sideways moment? Point for the biggest crash? Point for the cleanest car at the end of the race?

These are some good ideas, but I reckon there are more out there. What do you think points should be awarded for?
