Double points here to stay

Friday 24-January-2014 09:01

The double points rule for the season finale will go ahead after the team bosses failed to object in a meeting.

The team bosses met with Bernie Ecclestone earlier this week but, according to the BBC "no attempt was made to overturn it."

Although several teams and drivers voiced opinions prior to Wednesday's meeting in Geneva, when push came to shove nothing was said.

Andrew Benson reports that "none of the teams chose to make a major issue of the plan at the meeting, probably because they felt it was not worth falling out with Ecclestone over."

As such, double points will be awarded for the first time in this year's season finale in Abu Dhabi.
