Demerit Point System Approved

It’s relatively powerless FOTA (missing Red Bull and Ferrari), and they’ve got it backwards nonetheless. More testing, less rules.

Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport said that during a meeting with Charlie Whiting on Wednesday, the scheme — with drivers allowed to accrue only 12 ‘demerit points’ against their super licenses before a race ban is imposed — survived a vote by 7 to 4. The proposal will now be taken to the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council for approval next month.


At the same Barcelona meeting, team bosses voted down Ferrari’s proposal to bring back extensive in-season track testing, although some teams were in favour.
