Dou­ble points for F1’s last race

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

For­mula One will award dou­ble points for the last race of the sea­son in an at­tempt to keep cham­pi­onships un­de­cided un­til the very end, the sport’s gov­ern­ing body an­nounced on Mon­day. The In­ter­na­tional Au­to­mo­bile Fed­er­a­tion said the change, af­ter a sea­son of record dom­i­na­tion by Red Bull and quadru­ple cham­pion Sebastian Vet­tel, was im­me­di­ately ap­pli­ca­ble and would “max­i­mize fo­cus on the cham­pi­onship un­til the end of the cam­paign”. Vet­tel, 26, won the last nine races of 2013 and wrapped up his fourth ti­tle with three rounds to spare.
