Bonus point for fastest lap

So what does everyone think about the new bonus point for fastest lap?

I loved the battle and intrigue over stategies for the extra point. No one was quite sure whether to go for it or what to do in this first race, but it's going to throw out some interesting strategy calls over the season.

Toto said he banned the drivers from going for it pre-race, but changed his mind after Bottas scored it.

Horner said they were considering bringing Gasly in for new tyres at the end just to "steal" the point from Top 10 opponents, so no one got it, which was an interesting twist.

Leclerc could have pitted for new tyres at the end with the gap he had, but Ferrari didn't want to risk throwing it all away with a bad pit stop.
