Nov.17 (GMM) Formula one is considering a demerit-point scheme to penalise both on and off-track driver offenses from 2013, it has emerged.
"I think at the moment you're meant to receive three reprimands and then you get something so I think it's just presumably a further elaboration on that point," said McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh.
It is believed drivers could lose super license 'points' not only for on-track infractions, but also offenses such as Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen's podium swearing recently in Abu Dhabi.
"Providing it's administered in a correct, consistent manner then why should we have any problem with it?" Whitmarsh added.
"It's the same for all drivers and the same for all teams."
