Sergio Perez has defended F1′s controversial new ‘double points’ rule for the 2014 season finale.
With the sport moving to ensure the championship stays alive throughout the season, the ‘double points’ rule was greeted with uproar among fans and slammed by dominant 2013 champion Sebastian Vettel as “nonsense”.
Team boss Franz Tost insists 2014 is not Jean-Eric Vergne’s last chance to shine for Toro Rosso.
At the beginning of the year, amid rumours Mark Webber would retire, it was said that either Vergne or his teammate Daniel Ricciardo will step up to Red Bull for 2014, while the other is dropped from the energy drink company’s driver development programme.
Sebastien Buemi has admitted his career will probably stay on its current course in 2014.
Daniel Ricciardo has been signed by Red Bull’s champion team for at least three years, and the other energy drink-owned F1 squad, Toro Rosso, looks likely to field Jean-Eric Vergne alongside rookie Antonio Felix da Costa next season.
