Double points idea 'crazy' - Massa

Double points idea 'crazy' - Massa

Felipe Massa believes awarding doubling points for the final race of the season is a 'crazy' idea.

After Red Bull dominated the final stages of the Drivers' and Constructors' Championship last year, double points will be available for the season's finale in Abu Dhabi in an attempt to keep audiences interested until the end of the season.

Had the double points rule been in effect in previous years, Massa would have been crowned World Champion in 2008, but the former Ferrari driver admitted that he wouldn't like to win the Drivers' Championship in that fashion.

"No. I don't know. Maybe it can be worse now," the Brazilian told crash.net.

"I think it's impossible to say it's a stupid thing, a good thing or a bad thing before. It's a crazy thing, you know, but maybe it's interesting and we will see.

"To be honest when we have a very good championship it can even help, but if we don't have a good championship it doesn't change anything to be honest.

"Honestly, maybe it's bad; maybe it's good, it depends.

"If it helps it's always good, you know? If I had these double points on my championship then I was going to be champion."
