World champion Sebastian Vettel
has slammed a rule change in
Formula One under which double
points are splashed out at the season-
ender from next year onwards.
"It is absurd and punishes those
who have worked hard for a whole
season. I cherish the old tradition in
Formula One and don t understand
this new rule," Vettel told the Sport
"Just imagine you would suddenly
get double points on the last
Bundesliga day," the Red Bull driver
added in reference to football.
e new Formula One strategy
group decided yesterday to make the
rule change "in order to maximise
focus on the championship until the
end of the campaign", according to
a statement by the ruling body FIA.
Red Bull motorsport chief Helmut
Marko said his team was against
the change "but our team principal
Christian Horner was outvoted".
e plan was allegedly hatched
by F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone and
FIA president Jean Todt after Vettel
clinched the 2013 title with four
races to spare and the last race in
Brazil was an anti-climactic affair.
However, Vettel would have also
been assured of the title before the
last race (and in 2011) if the new
rule to award 50 instead of 25 points
had applied then.
Marko told Sport Bild that a
first plan called for "giving double
points in the last four races. en
the championship would have been
useless before that". But this idea
was not approved.
Other decisions yesterday were
permanent numbers between two
and 99 for drivers (with No 1 still
reserved for the world champion),
five-second penalties for minor
infringements and a cost cap from

of six members each from the
teams, the FIA and Ecclestone s
According to the BBC, the teams
rejected a plan --- allegedly from
tyre makers Pirelli and Todt --- for
two mandatory pit stops at each race.
e report said that the teams
felt such a move would interfere
with race strategies and make races
artificial and almost identical in
format. e strategy group agreed
on an additional tyre test in Bahrain
between December 17 and 19.

for the next edition of the
Germany s Julia Goerges, a
regular attendee of the Auckland
tournament, has been given one
of the spots, while the Czech
Republic s Andrea Hlavackova
has nabbed the other wildcard.
Goerges, who was ranked as
high as 15 in 2012, slipped to
72 this year after a disappointing
run on the WTA Tour, which
included 15 first-round exits.
She managed a fourth round
appearance at the Australian
Open, as well as the third
rounds of the Indian Wells and
Charleston tournaments, hinting
at a return to form.
e addition of Hlavackova,
who is coming off an impressive
2013 doubles season, winning
the US Open in both the mixed
and women s events, provides a
major boost for the doubles draw.

director Karl Budge said with
five of the top 10 doubles
players in the world attending
the Auckland tournament, the
doubles draw was shaping up
"It is still hard to say as we re not
sure which players will enter the
doubles and what the pairings
will be, but it is looking like it
will be extremely competitive,"
Just four spots remain in the

beginning December 30.
