Melbourne 2009

The International Automobile Federation said in a statement its World Motor Sport Council had met in Geneva and approved several amendments to the 2014 sporting regulations.There was no mention of double points, and an FIA spokesman could not say whether the subject was even discussed.

The BBC reported that the proposal was raised at a meeting with team bosses and Formula One’s commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone on Wednesday but no attempt was made to overturn it.Red Bull’s quadruple champion Sebastian Vettel, who won his fourth successive title last year with three races to spare, has called double points “absurd” while a significant number of fans have derided the idea as a gimmick on social media.
