London: This year’s Formula One title will go to the driver who wins the most races rather than the most points, the sport’s governing body said on Tuesday.
The International Automobile Federation (FIA) said in a statement that its world motor sport council had rejected a proposal by the teams to change the scoring system to reward race winners. Instead, the council has accepted a Formula One management proposal to award the drivers’ championship to the driver who has won the most races in the season.
