The 2010 F1 points system

In 2010 F1 adopted the same points system as most other motor sports. I was interested to see what difference it would make. After 13 races there were a few anomolies where racers are in different positions that if last year’s points system were used.

Here is the drivers table.

Felipe Massa 124 30
Nico Rosberg 112 22

Sebastien Buemi 7

Jaime Alguersuari 4

and here is the constructors table
