Plus ça change…

… plus c’est la même chose.

It really wouldn’t be Formula 1 if there wasn’t a last minute panic, would there? If it isn’t a team collapsing, it’s a rule changing three times in the month before the season changes. It it isn’t a driver breaking contract, it’s a circuit being dropped because someone called Bernie short.

Formula 1 has axed plans for a new scoring system in 2009, just nine days before the start of the season.

The sport’s governing body, FIA, announced earlier this week that the driver with the most wins would be crowned world champion.

But following a protest from F1 teams, FIA says it will defer the introduction of the new system until 2010.

This one seems to be a storm in a teacup, but I’m sure that there’ll be something else along on the subject. After all, there’s a whole week to go before the first race gets underway, and the only thing that never changes in Formula 1 is that the FIA never quite seem to have gotten all the agreements that they thought they had before they make a sweeping change…
