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.

Jenson Button 165 49 2

Felipe Massa 124 30
Nico Rosberg 112 22

Adrian Sutil 45 5

and here is the constructors table
