That is probably true. I think it crunches the gains and losses after qualifying as well as post race. So the actual positions changes listed can be a little confusing if one is only wanting to see the weekly overall changes.Last week, I fell to 28th in points (from 3rd) after a miserable finish. Now I'm 29th, but Yahoo tells me I've lost 4 positions instead of 1.
Qualifying must be confusing Yahoo, which is confusing me.
