Points for F1 Drivers

Just read this article on a vague idea cast by Max Mosley (chief of motorsport in F1). He seems to be suggesting that a points system similar to that used in Ireland should be introduced into F1. Drivers would clock up points for offences and then would be suspended from races when they cross a limit. Personally I think it is a stupid idea that will bring F1 closer to a stand still were the track positions on the starting grid will be held until the finish and nobody will ever pass again. I’m all for increased driver safety but there are limits. Having been an F1 fan for over 14 years I find my own interest in the sport is waining greatly in recent times. source: Irish Times
