In 2014, FD’s qualifying results do not matter [EDITORIAL]

DrewCarey-WhoseLine

3 weeks ago, Formula D invited me to be on their Drift Nation podcast. In discussing whether Chris Forsberg has the championship locked up or not, I guessed that based on how well he had done in qualifying, he had a substantial advantage over the other drivers. While Chris Forsberg is the best qualifying driver, digging a little deeper actually surprised me at how little qualifying matters this year. This year, the way championship points are allocated was changed, and it doesn’t look like this change was for the better.

If we threw out all qualifying results, the top 25 places in the overall championship standings would not change. The first position where qualifying points actually changes the standings is 26th, where 7 drivers who would be tied with 64 points based on tandem would split their tie based on qualifying points.
