“I don?óÔé¼Ôäót like it,” he said when asked about the proposal after qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix.
“I don?óÔé¼Ôäót know, maybe I?óÔé¼Ôäóm a little bit too old fashioned, I don?óÔé¼Ôäót want to make this too long but I think we had a lot of penalties in the past,” he explained.
“I think from a drivers?óÔé¼Ôäó point of view we?óÔé¼Ôäóve been pushing for penalties and right now we are probably in a situation where we have more penalties than we would like so it?óÔé¼Ôäós a little bit of a vicious circle.
“I think the catalogue is not released entirely. I?óÔé¼Ôäóve seen some sketch of it but I think you have the potential of scoring points for some things that are not entirely in our hands and small things and at the end of the day the consequence could be very big. I don?óÔé¼Ôäót know if that?óÔé¼Ôäós the idea.
“Surely, if you want to adapt a system that everybody uses on the road, which is the idea, there might be some logic behind it, but at the end of the day we are not driving on the road, we are racing.”
Under the proposal drivers would accrue penalty points in addition to the existing penalties, and would be forced to miss a race once they reach 12 points.
