For the life of me, I can not begin to understand why this is even being discussed. This is the single dumbest idea, in regards to F1, I have ever heard.

I very clearly recall the F1 points system being overhauled for the '03 season. This was because the Maccas and Prancing Donkeys were getting all of the points. Back then points were handed out from 1st thru 6th place. with the domination the Ferrari was enjoying at the time, no other team was getting points. So they changed the point system so that some of the other teams would get a point here & there.

Now they want to only hand out "medals" to the top 3 finishers? Huh? I don't understand how this is better?
