Gold Medal For Winning

64 posts in this topic

The almighty Bernie has stated that he would prefer the issuing of a "Gold Medal" for first place in a GP.

His idea, floated past Max Mosely, is that at the end of the season the driver with the most "Gold Medals" wins the championship !!

This idea, as I understand it from what I have read, is to promote "Overtaking" in a GP (Bernie's idea)

my personal opinion of this is totally male animal excretia i.e. BS

Next the winning driver will be awarded with a bunch of bloody flowers !!!!

One time they did get flowers....

....isn't this just the same thing as he who has most wins in a season is made champ? Sorry but i can't agree with a system that could potentially award a championship season that features say three or more winners, but one guy wins the championship by only finishing those races he wins...ie 6 wins out of 17 races / 11 retirements, with the remaining races being won by three or more other drivers, all of whom finish all races in the season and never out of top 4 or 5 places.

Bloody geriatric bernie...go sod off somewhere

Top three drivers would also be given a packet of salt biscuits along with a cup of tea during Post race press conference. Three cubes of sugar for the winner, two cubes for the second placed, and on for the thrid placed driver.It would be intersting how drivers react to Jasmine tea along with radio active milk biscuits served after the Chinese Grandprix.

oh oh, I know I know, why not make it so that you have to turn in your gold medals for upgrades to your car. Everybody starts out with a honda civic and as the season progresses you exchange your points until you have some form of hybrid monster car that's half civic half formula one car. Think of it, a civic with a formula one engine and big front and rear wings but those tiny civic wheels and all the cars need to be in that "grandparent gold" color with purple racing stripes and a giant rice rocket muffler.

oh I could so be on Burnie's brain trust for ideas to advance the sport :D

That's a good point, when did they stop with the flowers?? :eusa_think:

I always thought giving them flowers was a bit at odds with the macho, womanising image, though :lol:

No you can't, beause you're ideas are far too sensible.

I think the winner should get the right to hit Bernie in the head with a rubber chicken. Not Mosley, he might actually like that.

Ok, then I'll settle for hitting you on the head with a rubber chicken.

Wouldn't choking the chicken be more fun??

Because a rubber chicken is not wet and sticky, which is how you like it.

Now, why not do that for the winner?

The point system is not that great as it is. We can all see why. Point-wise, a position or two makes little difference. A change would be welcome.

Another issue is whether or not to award vacuum cleaners. That I consider brilliant.
