Strategy and paradoxes of borda count in Formula 1 racing

Brien Kaiser
2020 Decyzje  
Winning a championship is the highest achievement in Formula 1, and multiple titles can earn one a place in the pantheon of the sport.  ...  In this article I explore whether the scoring method for selecting a champion can be considered defi nitive, and how unstable results might be when the method's parameters are slightly changed.  ...  For this simulation all races were counted toward the championship in every season. Only the points awarded for fi nishing positions were changed.  ...
