Double points

The concept sees the points for the selected event doubled, giving teams greater motivation to fight for a higher finish.

This concept would provide jeopardy in the championships if teams’ points tallies were close, and could swing the outcome. Exciting for fans but tough for teams and drivers. 

It is not currently used in F1 but was trialled in 2014 when double points were awarded for the final race.
