ff1 – teams update

I’m aware that the FF1 rules, as stated on the website, do not make clear what happens when drivers are replaced on either a temporary or permanent basis. At present this now affects three teams, Toro Rosso (Jaime Alguersuari replacing Sebastien Bourdais), Ferrari (Michael Schumacher replacing Felipe Massa) and Renault (a replacement for Nelson Piquet Jr to be announced).

In each of these situations, the replacement driver will score points for all those who had chosen the driver being replaced. So, as Schumacher is Ferrari’s chosen replacement for Massa, points scored by Schumacher will be allocated to those who have Massa in their team – likewise with the replacement of Bourdais in Toro Rossa.

Another shake up to the season, so keep an eye on the table…
