The governing body of Formula One, the FIA, has just announced that the 2009 season will feature a new scoring system for the drivers championship based solely on wins. You win the most races, you win the championship. Massa probably wishes the FIA had changed the scoring system a season earlier, but the new one will likely result in more exciting racing as drivers are forced to throw strategy out the window and go for the gold. The old scoring system will still be used, however, in case there's a tie that needs broken. Thanks for the tip, John!
