Hamilton would be leading title under old points system  (GMM)  If the 2009 points system was applied to this season's results so far, Mark Webber would not be leading the world championship.

For 2010, the scoring positions were extended from eighth to tenth, while the winner is now awarded 25 points, rather than the 10 handed out in 2009 and earlier.

The intention was to better reward actual winning rather than mere point-scoring consistency.

Indeed, after the first 12 races of 2010, Lewis Hamilton - who has won twice in 2010 - would be the drivers' title leader if the 2009 system was still in place.

Instead, it is Red Bull's Webber in charge of the standings, having won more grands prix (4) than any other driver so far.

He has 4 more points than Hamilton, with the analysis by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport showing that that the McLaren driver would be leading Webber by 2 points under the 2009 system.
