Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone says he’s not going to recommend that the last three races of 2015 are worth double-points and doubts next year will see a repeat of the scoring procedure which features in this weeks Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
“I’m not going to propose the three races again,” he told the Independent.
“I’m going to let them get on with it. I don’t know what we’re going to do next year.”
The venerable ring leader of F1 recommended that the last three races of 2014 were to be worth double points but called the teams “bloody idiots” for not going with the plan and seeing the numerical challenge and excitement involved.
After passing the double-points scenario, the teams promptly began bad-mouthing the notion for the remainder of the year making them look positively silly. While no fan of the double-points idea, it is something the teams voted “yes” for and it makes you wonder what kind of group think is going on in F1 these days.
