Final three races should award double points – Ecclestone

Bernie-Ecclestone-F1-lawsuit-New-YorkFollowing the last Formula One’s strategy group meeting decided to introduce, Double points for final race from 2014 F1 season.

Earlier this week Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo predicted it would last just one year before being scrapped, and other many people disagree the new double-points system.

Recently Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone suggested that controversial double points system to set up in final three races or none at all.

“Personally my preference would be for the final three races to be worth double points,” Ecclestone told The Daily Telegraph.

“But it may well be that the rule is cancelled altogether at the next [strategy group] meeting in January.”

“I think it should be the final three races or nothing. The final three races would mean the championship is kept interesting for everyone – fans, press and television – right until the end.”

The rule was supported by television companies which suffered disappointing viewing figures at the end of the 2013 season dominated by Sebastian Vettel.
