“It’s a personal view, but I’m not a fan of it at all,” Newey told Autosport. To me it just seems very artificial that third place [in Abu Dhabi] will now be worth more than first place at Monaco or another race.

“To me it just seems very artificial that third place [in Abu Dhabi] will now be worth more than first place at Monaco or another race.
