Double points introduced to help Ferrari – Ecclestone



Kimi-in-jerezFormula 1 commercial right holder, Bernie Ecclestone has claimed that the controversial double points rule has been introduced to help Ferrari compete.

Bernie Ecclestone has already found someone to blame following the negative response of the rule that provides for the distribution of points doubled in the last stage of the season: a Ferrari, starting this year, the event in Abu Dhabi worth double points for the remaining stages of the World .

Last few seasons, the Red Bull F1 dominated, winning four consecutive titles Constructors, with Sebastian Vettel took four titles.

Also the Sebastian Vettel’s one man show reflected in the audience of the Formula One world, who lost 50 million viewers in 2013 season.

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said about the points change “seems very artificial.”

In a radio interview ‘ City AM ‘, Ecclestone justified the change in regulation and declared that Ferrari is responsible for the change, telling a conversation he had with Montezemolo.

“He was talking about it and I said: ‘ It is very simple why we have done it. It is because you are not performing well. If you were doing what they should be doing, there would be no need for that, ‘” he said.

“And he said, ‘I know, I know,” he concluded.
